Despite its rich agricultural resources, Zambia has chronic food and nutrition security problems. While pulse crops like beans and cowpeas help enhance food security, very little credible information is available on their flow through the supply chain and value at each stage.
We're helping improve knowledge about the pulse industry's value chain and its influencing factors. Our research is filling in the gaps in information to help all stakeholders in the value chain make better decisions to maximize income and improve the nation's nutrition.
Agricultural economists from Kansas State University and the University of Zambia have joined together with assistance from a USAID grant and the Michigan State University Dry Grain Pulses Collaborative Research Support Program.
