New stem-rust resistant wheat varieties developed

Good news from plant breeders in Kenya this week, as they announce two new wheat varieties which are resistant to the Ug99 strain of wheat stem rust. The scientists hope to make the new varieties available to farmers in the coming months.

In our second story, we feature a woman who uses moringa to improve children’s nutrition. Dismayed by the level of malnutrition in her village, she set about planting moringa trees and encouraging mothers to add powdered moringa leaves to the children’s meals.

This week we honour the achievements of Mr. David Ghartey-Tagoe, and congratulate him as he receives an award from the President of Ghana. Mr. Ghartey-Tagoe founded Radio Peace, one of Farm Radio International’s broadcasting partners.

Happy reading!
