    Nov 24, 2014

    Since 2011, 20 graduate students from Tanzania have become Buckeyes as part of an extensive effort to provide long-term food security in the East African nation. Through the Innovative Agricultural Research Initiative (iAGRI), led by Ohio State University’s Office of International Programs in Agriculture, a total of 135 Tanzanian graduate students are receiving advanced agricultural training at universities in the United States, Africa and India to build a new generation of Tanzanian agricultural scholars.
