In this short interview, Dr Bright Jumbo explains the progress of Africa RISING efforts to develop maize varieties resistant to Maize Lethal Necrosis (MLN) disease in Babati District, Tanzania. Through the intervention, the project team also seeks to understand the epidemiology of MLN as a means to developing suitable integrated solutions to manage its threat sustainably. Most of the commercially available maize varieties have shown susceptibility to the disease thereby causing farmers significant income loss in addition to threatening their food security.
