Monty Jones: plant breeder

“Farmers in southern Sudan who may be willing to produce a surplus could not sell their extra output. The roads are so bad that fertilizers can’t get in and the harvest can’t get out. It’s cheaper to ship grain to Mombasa from Australia than it is from southern Sudan, which is just next door. We need roads, markets, and reduced tariffs. If we succeed in these things, Africa has the potential to feed the rest of the world. In fact Africa must feed the world”.
