CABI has led new research which reveals that more than half (57 percent) of smallholder farmers in two Kenyan counties have knowledge of pollination and consciously act to maintain bees, birds and butterflies while fighting pests and diseases including the Fall armyworm and coffee berry disease.
CABI is hosting a one-day conference to highlight the vital role development communications in agriculture plays in helping the world’s smallholder farmers maximise their profits and contribute towards ensuring global food security.
CABI joins effort to sequence genomes of every known species of plant, animal, fungi and protozoa in the British Isles
CABI is helping to ‘unlock’ the mysteries of natural life itself by taking part in the Darwin Tree of Life Project (DToL) which aims to sequence the genetic codes of 60,000 species that live across the British Isles. The work forms part of a worldwide effort – through the global Earth BioGenome Project (EBP) – to sequence the genomes of all 1.5 million known species of plants, animals, fungi and protozoa on Earth.
