"A Platform Technology for Improving Livelihoods of Resource Poor Farmers in Africa
Africa faces increasingly serious problems in its ability to feed its rapidly growing population, resulting in high hunger and poverty incidences. Growth in agricultural productivity is essential to reduce hunger and poverty and ensure food security. Agricultural growth can be achieved by reducing incidence of the major constraints to productivity such as pests, weeds and degraded soils. These constraints are responsible for the continent’s crop productivity being the lowest in the world (around 1t/ha compared with 2.4t/ha in South Asia, 3.2t/ha in Latin America and 4.5t/ha in East Asia and Pacific), and cause high levels of hunger, malnutrition and poverty. .......

"Interview with Dr Michael Otim, Research Officer (Crop Entomologist), NARO, Uganda

.... NARO was mostly involved in the validation of the technology in different districts in Uganda, then in the initial promotion. I have seen many adaptations according to the different production systems and preferences of farmers. For instance in areas where stem borer is not a problem. no Napier grass is planted. In other areas where fodder is important, more Napier grass is planted. It also works with sorghum as main crop, for instance in Busia, And recent work has shown that the integration of beans is also possible."....
