This is an article that appeared on SciDev.Net at the beginning of the month after the African Green Revolution Conference in Oslo. The item was entitled “Agricultural developments ‘failing to reach farmers’”. Chief Executive of the Africa Harvest Biotech Foundation Florence Wambugu was quoted as talking of the “need to plug the gap between the lab and the field”. The article touches on the way some organisations are hoping to tackle this problem. Please note that since the article first came out there have been a couple of interesting comments left by readers – well worth a read!
