    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it...

    By Fertility And Soils

    Published 8 months ago

A trade war has beaten down already marginal prices, inputs have risen more than anyone could have predicted and many of us have experienced a so-called thousand-year weather event--not only once but twice in the last four years.

    Call for Proposals: Innovation Platforms, Agribusinesses and other Multi-stakeholders platforms to Scale Agricultural Technologies in Africa

    The goal of this call is to competitively provide support to existing/new innovation Platforms, agribusinesses and other Multi-stakeholders platforms to bring technologies to scale on TAAT commodities value chain: rice, wheat, maize, sorghum/millet, cassava, beans, sweet potatoes, fish and small livestock (including poultry).

    This call is only suitable for agribusinesses and multi-stakeholder groups working on the TAAT commodities value chain with business considerations. This call will prioritize the development and operationalization of business cases on the IP using existing technologies and less on conducting research to develop new technologies. As a result of this call, smaller Innovation platforms or clusters may be requested to consolidate into larger operational platforms.

    FARA has some seed funding from the African Development Bank to pilot capacity development support. Furthermore, it proposes to facilitate the development of investment portfolio for consideration at national level through the compilation of the applications to this call. Incremental and phased sub-grant funding and other capacity development support valued up to US $20,000 for a period of two (2) years and are expected to be provided to suitably developed proposals on case by case basis.

    Application Deadline: June 30th, 2019
