Handbook on African Indigenous Leafy Vegetables out now!

We are immensely proud to share our latest SLE publication: a Training Manual for Extension Officers and Practitioners focusing on the “Production and Marketing of African Indigenous Leafy Vegetables (AIVs)”, including all essential aspects to grow AIVs following agroecological methods from seeds selection, seeding, fertilization, pest management, harvesting, to marketing and consumption.

The HORTINLEA project scientists and collaborators went beyond producing multi-disciplinary scientific knowledge on AIVs and turned that knowledge into a practical guide for growing and marketing AIVs tailored to those who need it the most: the extension workers and practitioners or, in other words, the people producing the foods contributing to our health.”
Céline Termote, Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT

The handbook is written by Judith Henze (PhD) from SLE, Prof. Mary Abukutsa-Onyango (PhD), the Deputy Vice Chancellor Research, Production and Extension of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), and Arnold Mathew Opiyo (PhD), Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Agriculture, Egerton University.

You can find the manual here.
