Contains discussions on:

  1. rethinking the framework for policy analysis
  2. elusiveness of an African "green revolution"
  3. the changing profile of Nigerian farming
  4. revisiting the IITA agenda

The goal of IITA is to increase the productivity of key food crops and to develop sustainable agricultural systems that can replace bush fallow, of slash-and-burn, cultivation in the humid and subhumid tropics. Crop improvement programs focus on cassava, maize, plantain, cowpea, soybean, and yam. Research findings are shared through international cooperation programs, which include training, information, and germplasm exchange activities.
