AU: science to transform agriculture

The African Union on Monday urged the continent's governments to embrace the use of science in order to transform its agricultural sector. African Union (AU) Commissioner for Rural Economy and Agriculture Rhoda Peace Tumusiime told an agricultural forum in Nairobi that all known advances in humanity are based on appropriate investment in science and technology. "The African continent should therefore prioritize the role of science in order to improve its agricultural productivity," Tumusiime said during the high level planning meeting on scaling agricultural Innovations in Africa. The AU member states declared 2014 the year of agriculture, food and nutrition and committed to end hunger in the Africa by 2025. It is estimated that about 26 percent of the untapped arable land for agricultural production in the world is in Africa.
