[Dear colleagues: Finally, there is closing yield gaps in Africa - Let me share with you the attached article (En route to plentiful food production in Africa) in case you have not seen it. It is very encouraging. And this is happening because of people like you working hard daily to help smallholder farmers improve their soils and its productivity, and grow the input and output markets they need to farm profitably. We are proud of you and value a lot your partnership.
SHP- please share the article with grantees and partners I have left out inadvertently.
Cheers, Dr. Bashir Jama (Program Director, SHP-AGRA)]
