Biofortification: Better Crops, Better Nutrition
Dr. Howarth Bouis was awarded the 2016 World Food Prize, often referred to as the "Nobel Prize" for agriculture, along with three other biofortification pioneers. He is the founder of HarvestPlus, which works with more than 200 partners worldwide to scale up access to biofortified foods. Please join us to hear Dr. Bouis describe what lies ahead. How does biofortification complement other approaches to micronutrient deficiency? What role have U.S. researchers and policymakers played in achieving successes to date? What are the challenges to scaling up across different countries, crops, and seed systems?
