The Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) has given its 2012 Award for Best KARI Implemented Project to an effort mobilizing partnerships along banana value chains to mitigate the impact of Xanthomonas wilt and prevent resurgence of the disease in areas where it has been brought under control. The project is led by Bioversity International, in collaboration with KARI, the Ugandan National Agriculture Research Organization and other regional partners, and is funded by the McKnight Foundation.
