ARF-1 final factsheet: Improved varieties of spider plant for Africa
“Improved varieties of spider plant for Africa (in Benin and Kenya)” is a Food & Business Applied Research Fund (ARF) project which received funding in the first ARF Call.
ARF projects tackle challenges related to food and nutrition security and private sector development in the 15 partner countries of Dutch development cooperation. They all stem from the knowledge and innovation needs of farmers, practitioners and policymakers. The research-driven innovations support new tools and technologies for food and nutrition security that should ultimately benefit the world’s most vulnerable people, especially women and children.
This ARF project has been finalized and has published its final results, confirming that there is a growing demand in spider plant in urban areas. More people are aware of the nutritional and medicinal qualities of the plant and integrate it into their eating habits.
