New WEBsite on Perennial Crops in Africa

If you are interested in research and values of perennials grown in countries in Africa then you should visit this site:
This website shares the progress of a research and extension team from Michigan State University.  Take a look at the crop profiles to see how many different perennials there are in Africa, and many are eaten and are nutritious! The goal of this site is to identify the wide-uses and values of an assortment of African perennial grains,  encouraging farmers to invest in these types of crops, selecting ones that grow well in their climate while addressing their needs-economically, nutritionally and environmentally. Ultimately, favorable adoption and use could lead to a transformation toward a sustainable intensification by many African smallholder farmers.
