INTSORMIL Quarterly Report October 1, 2008 – December 31, 2008
This report details the recent progress achieved under the Cooperative Agreement # 688-A-00- 007-00043-00. The report covers progress in the Production-Marketing, Food Processing and Décrue Sorghum components.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has stated that we now have an historic opportunity to revitalize agriculture (see box below). In response to such comments we have designed this project specifically to move sorghum and millet production technologies onto farmers’ fields, link farmers’ organizations to food and feed processors and to commercialize processing technologies so as to enhance markets. To achieve this we improve the supply chain from the farm level to the consumer.
