Ghana to host training of West African soil scientists
by Kofi Adu Domfeh,

About $2.1 million is being invested over the next five years to train soil scientists for the West African sub-region. The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has been selected to build a centre of excellence to oversee the project.

Twenty students from Baukina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger and Nigeria will be offered scholarships to undertake a four-year PhD programme at the university under the aegis of the Alliance for Green Revolution Africa (AGRA).

They are expected to contribute to the achievement of an envisaged six percent growth in Africa’s food production by 2015 under the Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP).
