University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences(UF/IFAS) is partnering the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA), to carry out research in the agricultural sector and check pollution. 

Speaking on the partnership, the leader of UF/IFAS, Jack Payne, said: “Africa has two great sources of appeal from a scientist’s point of view. One, it offers a great opportunity to put science to work and improve lives. In addition, it is home to crops of talented scientists such as those at IITA who are invaluable partners.” 

Payne signed the agreement during the World Food Prize events in Iowa, while Director General, Nteranya Sanginga signed on behalf of
IITA.

Sanginga, who did this after participating in a panel discussion organised by UF/IFAS on the armyworm’s threat to African food security, said, “IITA and UF/IFAS share a common approach to science. We see discovery as a source of solutions, a catalyst for action, and the foundation for international cooperation. Combining our expertise will accelerate inquiry and proffer solutions to the challenges armyworm pose.”
