The noted scientist Carl Sagan has stated that “Advances in medicine and agriculture have saved vastly more lives than have been lost in all the wars in history (see box below). This project promotes advances in agriculture by moving sorghum and millet production technologies onto farmers’ fields, linking farmers’ organizations to food and feed processors and by commercializing processing technologies so as to enhance markets. To achieve this we improve the supply chain from the farm level to the consumer. This project also promotes improved nutrition and thus contributes to the betterment of human health in one of the most impoverished areas of the earth.
