Drought resistant Kenyan beans to revolutionise food sector

Researchers from the University of Nairobi, Kenya, with support from Bio-resource Innovations Network for Eastern Africa Development (Bio-Innovate) Program developed superior, better-yielding, drought-resistant beans. They have much shorter cooking time, about 40 % less cooking time, which makes it a convenient investment for the canning industry as it significantly reduces energy costs. Additionally, beans ‘considered’ a woman’s crop can bring significant advances for women. These varieties are expected to have a strong impact in countries in eastern Africa, including Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
