Yesterday I wrote about the N2Africa project, which aims to spread the practical benefits of nitrogen fixation in African agriculture. Lionel Moulin replied with a comment pointing out that the IRD (the French national research institute for development) also works on nitrogen fixation in Africa. They have a base in Senegal, and also have collaborators and projects in North Africa. In fact, IRD operates in the ‘South’ all over the world, though Africa may be their biggest concern.
Is there anyone reading this blog in Africa? If so, please write a comment to tell us what you are doing with rhizobia.
