Description

This annual report is an overview of the major achievements in improving the livelihoods of farmers who are end users of the results of our research. The report highlights how our scientific interventions have increased domestic food supply and created jobs in Nigeria. Over 10,000 farmers and small  scale processors have been trained in various agribusiness, seed production, safe agro-chemical application and post-harvest activities. Other farmer groups comprising of 5353 members were trained in good agronomic practices (GAPs) in sorghum production.
