Potential of crop biotechnology for smallholder farmers in East Africa - IFPRI publication
As part of its "Research at a Glance" series, which aims to provide concise, comprehensive information on complex research issues to researchers and policy analysts, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has just published "Genetic resource policies: Promising crop biotechnologies for smallholder farmers in East Africa: Bananas and maize", edited by M. Smale, S. Edmeades and H. De Groote. The publication, comprising eight briefs, presents synopses of two case studies that explore the potential for integrating transgenic varieties of cooking bananas and maize into smallholder agriculture in East Africa.
