NextGen Cassava modernizes partner cassava breeding institutions in Africa and uses cutting-edge tools for efficient delivery of improved varieties of cassava. The ultimate beneficiaries of this project are the cassava farmers of sub-Saharan Africa, who will receive improved varieties that increase fresh root yields, are more resilient to devastating virus diseases, and exhibit other traits preferred by smallholder farmers.

NextGen is training the next generation of cassava scientists and our research is helping the push to modernize cassava breeding.
