Photo credit: IITA

The Agfax: Reporting Science in Africa website is an interesting place to explore and learn what is happening in the agricultural research and science communities of Africa.  The format provided by Agfax is usually an interview/audio file that one can choose to listen to directly on the internet, or download on to your PC to listen to at a later time.  Interviews aren’t very long, usually no more than 10 minutes, and each  interview  has an  accompanying document.

Their latest interview focuses on Beatrice Aighewi and Danny Coyne, two researchers who have been working with yam farmers in Nigeria,  they discuss how the technique works and the benefits it offers to yam farmers in West Africa. Click here to listen to the interview.
