Nibbles: Climate change vid, Lemongrass, Millets, GHUs, US potatoes

  1. Nice video on Future Climate for Africa.
  2. Indian forest communities diversify with lemongrass to help out with their climate change resilience.
  3. Have they tried millets, though? According to Millet Finder, millet products are taking over the world, so marketing should be no problem.
  4. If they don’t have seeds, they can get them from genebanks, via Germplasm Health Units, of course. The impact pathways of genebanks goes through GHUs.
  5. The Russet Burbank sure has had a big impact.
