KARI Develops Disease Resistant Napier Grass

The Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) has developed two varieties of Napier grass that are resistant to the Smut and Stunt diseases. Napier grass, a main fodder in Africa, has been severely affected by the two diseases that hit the region 20 years ago. The two varieties, Ouma and South Africa3, were developed by scientists at the KARI Center in Kakamega and a masters student from the Masinde Muliro University.
