Safeguarding Africa’s beans: CIAT’s Kawanda genebank and research station
Sulaiman Sebuliba, Research Technician, and Brenda Makyanzi, field technician. CIAT’s bean genebank at Kawanda research station, Uganda, receives new varieties from Colombia and safeguards beans across Africa. Researchers use the beans to breed more resilient varieties which are not only more drought and heat tolerant, but also more resistant to harmful pests and diseases, protecting the important bean staple.
