Latest Videos

Videos reflecting the collaboration between University of Cambridge and ICRISAT in two large multi-institutional projects-Tigr2ess and MillNET_i- were recently produced. The Tigr2ess project aims to transform India’s Green revolution through research in crop science, hydrology, social science and policy. MillNET_i is focused on improving iron nutrition status in Ethiopia and The Gambia by assessing the bioavailability of iron in millets. Bioavailability trials for pearl millet and finger millet are set to begin soon in Africa.
