Vegetables are high value and nutritious crops. However they are attacked by a wide range of pests and diseases. IITA is working with small-holder farmers to find sustainable ways to control these pests and diseases to increase vegetable production, and improve the livelihoods of the smallholder growers. This is through a grant from the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). This video by Planet Forward is focusing on some of this work in the island of Zanzibar.
