The main purposes of this project are:
- To establish a baseline of the current status of BNF, identify farm enterprises and niches for targeting N2-fixing legumes in the impact zones, and establish mechanisms for Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and impact assessment
- Select multi-purpose legumes (providing food, animal feed, structural materials and high quality residues) for enhanced BNF and integrate improved varieties into farming systems.
- Select superior rhizobia strains for enhanced BNF and develop inoculum production capacity in sub-Saharan Africa through collaboration with private sector partners
- Deliver legume and inoculant technologies to farmers throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
- Develop and strengthen capacity for BNF research, technology development, and application.
