Kansas State establishes multimillion-dollar global food security program
Thanks to an $8.5 million award from USAID, KSU will be able to set up its third iteration of a Feed the Future Innovation Lab. The Lab aims to solve problems caused by postharvest loss, an issue that affects up to a third of all worldwide harvests. “This newest lab will focus initially on helping the countries of Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Guatemala…” As populations continue to increase and economies grow, the demand for grain will also rise. It is crucial to the success of these economies to increase crop yields through preventative and other measures.
