r long-term productivity growth.

Virginia Tech will partner with Ohio State University as well as organizations in each of the targeted countries: the Office of the Upper Niger Valley and the Institute of Rural Economy in Mali, the Senegal Institute of Agricultural Research, and the National Agricultural Research Organization and Makerere University in Uganda.

The project is an associate award to Virginia Tech's Integrated Pest Management Collaborative Research Support Program, also funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, which has been working in sub-Saharan Africa for 15 years.

"This award represents a tremendous opportunity for Virginia Tech," said S.K. De Datta, associate vice president for international affairs and director of the Office of International Research, Education, and Development. "Through our past success in international agricultural research, we have built a good reputation both overseas and with donor agencies. In this time of rising food prices worldwide, I'm honored that we've been selected to manage this critically important project."
