Using fodder and forage crops

From germplasm to feed: putting ILRI’s genebank to work.

This video deals with the need to carry out research to better use forages to meet the needs for feeds in a changing environment with reducing grazing lands and shrinking farm size to meet increasing demand for crop and feed production. It covers the importance of using forage germplasm for gene discovery to mitigate diseases and identify drought tolerant materials that are better adapted to smallholder farmers needs.
