The ICT-KM Program interviews DAPA's Andy Farrow

Read the interview of the interview with DAPA’s Andy Farrow on his project on drought-tolerant bean seeds that aimed at providing information on the location of existing seed outlets.

It never rains but it pours, even during a drought. At least that’s what Andy Farrow must have thought when his project’s drought-tolerant bean seeds didn’t thrive due to insufficient rain. And yes, drought-tolerant bean seeds are designed to withstand droughts; but there are droughts and there are droughts. And the drought that hit many parts of Kenya last year saw rainfall levels trickle to about a quarter of those expected.

As the project coordinator of the AGCommons Nodes of Growth project, Andy waited for the much-needed rains to come. But when they finally arrived, it was a case of too little, too late for some regions.

During a recent interview with the ICT-KM Program, Andy, a spatial analyst with CIAT, talked openly about the setbacks the recently-concluded project encountered, as well as the positive impact it has had in Kenya.
