Productive cropping systems to reduce African crop failure

Queensland scientists are leading an international food security research collaboration that aims to increase crop production by 30 per cent and reduce crop failures for 500,000 African farmers.

The research aims to reduce poverty and improve food security for African communities and help Australian growers capitalise on opportunities from current trends in weather and expected changes in climate.

The project will design more productive and sustainable cropping systems in five countries of southern and eastern Africa, and back in Australia in Queensland and New South Wales.
