The Tata-Cornell Institute for Agriculture and Nutrition (TCI) has published its 2019-20 Annual Report. The report features updates on research and activities from the past year, as well as information regarding upcoming projects.
“I am delighted with the progress that TCI has made over the past seven years, and I am excited about the contributions that we are poised to make over the coming years,” TCI Director Prabhu Pingali writes in the report. “I am particularly excited by our role in enhancing the academic and development practitioner talent pool through the high-quality graduate students and postdoctoral associates that TCI has had the honor to support and mentor.”
The report offers an in-depth look at the full range of TCI’s current and upcoming research, from studies of value chains and markets to fortification and biofortification efforts.
