On April 5, Professor Richard Dick will discuss over 15 years of research he has led in the Sahel on optimized systems of G. senegalensis and P. reticulatum that have resulted in many intriguing benefits and mechanisms in relation to remediation of degraded soils and dramatic yield increases of millet and groundnut, with or without fertilizer.

His talk, “Culture, Agriculture And Shrubs: Improving Soils and Crop Yield in West Africa” is part of the “Voices From the Field” Brown Bag Series that highlights the work of Ohio State faculty who have had significant experience working in Africa. The series is organized by the Global Water Institute and the Center for African Studies.

The event is free and open to the public, and participants are welcome to bring lunch and eat during the conversation.  The discussion will be held from 12-1:00 p.m. in Enarson Classroom Building room 100.
