The project will develop and disseminate proven technologies through partnership and participatory approaches to increase productivity of beans in order to increase rural household income, reduce poverty and enhance food and nutrition security of resource poor farmers, especially women. The project will test and identify locally adapted and high-yielding varieties of beans that are drought tolerant in the face of climate variability and pest and disease resistant to minimize yield losses in the field. It proposes to develop and scale-up appropriate crop and soil fertility management practices across agro-ecologies and among rural communities.
