CCRP supported a special edition of "Experimental Agriculture"
The Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP) is supported by the McKnight Foundation to promote the collaborative research between smallholder farmers, leading local researchers, and development practitioners to explore solutions for sustainable, local food systems.
The CCRP has supported a special edition of the journal "Experimental Agriculture" regarding the concept options to contexts.
