This program will conduct research on various roots, tubers, and bananas to more fully realize the potential of these crops for improving nutrition, income generation, and food security among poor and vulnerable people, including women. Researchers and their partners will focus on conserving and accessing genetic resources; accelerating the development of improved varieties; managing priority pests and diseases; making available low-cost, high-quality planning materials for farmers; developing tools for more productive, ecologically robust cropping systems, and promoting postharvest technologies, value chains, and market opportunities.
