Farmers around the world can be helped to grow the best food that is fit for future generations with help from a new partnership between the University of Reading and ICRISAT. A recently-signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will see nutrition/health and crop scientists from the two research institutions commit to working closer together. Their research will focus on tackling how crops can provide a healthy and sustainable diet for future generations that face multiple challenges including climate change and growing worldwide obesity.
