                                             Mission:
                            To reduce hunger and poverty in the
                         tropics through collaborative research that
                           improves agricultural productivity and
                                natural resource management

            Common Bean
            This is the most important food legume for more than 300 million people,
            most of them in Latin America, where the crop was domesticated, and in Africa.
            Rich in protein, iron, and other dietary necessities,
            the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) has come to be known as the nearly
            perfect food. In addition to bolstering human nutrition, it has considerable
            economic importance, generating income for millions of small farmers.
            In Africa the vast majority of bean producers are women.
       Cassava
       A hardy root crop of tropical American origin, cassava (Manihot
       esculenta) provides food and livelihoods for about 500 million
       people across the developing world. Farmers particularly appreciate
       its strong tolerance of drought and poor soils. Some countries are
       tapping the potential of cassava’s starchy roots for processing into
       animal feed or for industrial use. Thus, in addition to strengthening
       food security, the crop offers new opportunities to generate
       employment and income for the poor.




Tropical Forages
The many species of tropical forages are a prominent feature of agricultural
landscapes around the world. Improved forage grasses and legumes boost
meat, milk, and fish production, helping to enhance human nutrition and
raise farm income. But they also have many other uses beyond their
traditional role in livestock production. Nitrogen-fixing legumes,
for example, enhance soil fertility, increasing the productivity of other crops.
Rice
Rice (Oryza sativa) is the most important food grain in
most of the tropical areas of Latin America and the
Caribbean, where it supplies more calories in people’s
diets than wheat, maize, cassava, or potatoes. More
efficient rice production is a central prerequisite for
bettering the lot of the region’s urban and rural poor.




Tropical Fruits
An estimated 2,300 tropical fruit species show production
potential. Some of them offer small farmers the
opportunity to break into lucrative domestic and export
markets, while at the same time improving family
nutrition and land management.
