Functional Circulation LLC Receives Grand Challenges Explorations Grant for Groundbreaking Research in Global Health and Development
Date:5/14/2012

/p>

The project developed by Brassil and colleagues will improve the bowls used by small-scale farmers to carry cassava roots to market by embedding natural pest repelling ingredients and passive communication electronics. These improvements will reduce the existing 20% loss of crops due to attacks by termites, whiteflies, scale, and grasshoppers, and will enable data to be collected that will show how the bowls are used and whether they are effective. "We are greatly encouraged by our Grand Challenges Explorations win," Brassil said. "By using these new bowls to prevent the transportation of infested vegetables, we aim to reduce and contain the contagious spread of pests."
