An interdisciplinary approach to optimum food utility of the peanut in SAT Africa.

Approach:

The general goal was to foster interdisciplinary (nutrition, food science, social and economic) institution-based linkages between U.S. and LDC scientists serving major peanut producing and consuming populations of the SemiArid Tropic regions of Africa for the purpose of optimizing the food utility of the peanut. The specific goal was consistent with the general goal of the Peanut CRSP to develop a collaborative research and development program on the peanut between scientists at Alabama A&M University, the University of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, and other SAT countries (later Ghana was added).
