MSU scientists will continue to bolster food production in Central Asia with our partners

Good news -- our team recently received word that US-AID IPM CRSP has renewed our funding at $1.25 million for the next five years.

We'll be promoting better pest management in growing key food crops: tomatoes, potatoes and wheat (for producing bread like the lovely loaf in the image).

Part of the goal will be to help our Central Asian partners build local expertise. Graduate students and key agricultural leaders will come to Michigan State University (MSU) and the University of California-Davis for short and long term training.

I'll be posting more details.
