    Dr Chrispus Oduori in the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation finger millet farm in Kakamega, Kenya, on 22nd July 2016. AGRA funded Dr Oduori's PhD training at University of Natal and later gave him a grant to advance his PhD products to the point of release to farmers. One of these products is 'maridadi' finger millet which in comparison to traditional varieties has higher yield, matures earlier, is adaptable to the environment, and resistant to biotic stresses and drought. Farmers planting 'maridadi' finger millet have recorded up to 500% increases in yield in comparison to traditional varieties.
