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. Groundnut, a Smart Food provides energy and essential nutrients such as protein, phosphorous, thiamin and niacin, key to fighting the scourge of hidden hunger. Over 80% of the severely malnourished children in Nigeria are in the northern region. Considering that Nigeria is home to the highest number of stunted children on the African continent and ranks third globally, with more tha 10 million stunted children, this guide is a handy reference source to address the challenges of malnutrition.
