Saving Kenyan crops

The widespread destruction of two key food crops in Kenya caused by a leaf disease could be prevented as a result of research being carried out at Warwick University.

The joint study will look at breeding kale and cabbage that are resistant to the Black Rot disease.

The vegetables are two of the most important crops in the Kenyan economy, as well as other east African states, but entire harvests are often wiped out by the seed-borne disease.
