    I am a second year Masters student of Agricultural Economics in Kenya and would wish to enroll for a research fellowship in your project. How do i go about it. Thank you

  2. I once supported the commercialization of Soybean Research with Dr. Omo, the idea was to create market demand by creating farmer owned enterprises so that research ceases being exciting only to researchers.

    When she left, this effort died, could that be revived… I still feel the potential for nutrition and wealth creation through commercialization of research is the ultimate solution…

    Am now in South Sudan doping some assignment and legumes are emerging as a value chain commodity on which we can promote value chain finance..

    I would be keen to re-establish ties with CIAT

    I am undertaking a research on the genetic diversity of bacteria which nodulate soybeans and bambara groundnuts on in kenya at BeCA-Hub in ILRI Kenya. I seek to link with your project since I have difficulty achieving infective nodulation with some of your promiscous soybean lines.
