At present, I am leading a project: Overcoming forage challenges in Africa: exploring sequence diversity in Napier grass to fast-track breeding projects at national level. This project aims to bring sustainable intensification of the smallholder livestock sector activities in SSA, by generating information and tools that can be used to rapidly select productive Napier grass (Cenchrus purpureus) genotypes with resilience against drought and disease pressure.
