Kansas State University to Lead Food Project

KSAL StaffOctober 1, 2014

A Kansas university says it’s leading a five-year food project that includes other schools and developing countries in examining ways small farms can increase production.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Kansas State University recently announced that it received a $50 million grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Vara Prasad, who will be the project’s director, says part of the issue is also reducing the amount of spoiled food. The project will also look at the nutritional needs of people farming the land.

The school will coordinate studies in Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Bangladesh and Myanmar. The grant will fund one or two projects proposed by colleges and nonprofits in each country.
