Interview with Glenn Hyman about the Africa trial sites network
Over on the ICT-KM blog you will find an interview with yours truly Glenn Hyman of DAPA about the Africa trial sites network. Also interviewed are our colleagues Kai Sonder of CIMMYT and Sibiry Traore of ICRISAT. AfricaTS is a project that came out of the collaboration between the CGIAR Consortium for spatial information and AgCommons. We are working with our African partners to standardize trial site information among four CGIAR centers who are working in Africa. Ultimately, we hope that this network will encourage the targeting of appropriate germplasm to its’ environmental niche in Africa.
