About us

The ASARECA Napier grass smut and stunt resistance project is a three year project launched in Kenya in 2007 which brings together scientists from several institutions working together to halt the spread of the diseases affecting elephant grass.

Dr Kabirizi in Uganda, Dr Mulaa in Kenya, Dr Pallangyo in Tanzania, Prof John Lucas in the UK, Drs Hanson and Proud in Ethiopia, the project partners, are part of a
