What does it take to transform agriculture in Africa, and Tanzania in particular? In this edition we are proud to contribute to the ongoing debate on transformation of agriculture. Yes, let’s ask ourselves: What does it take to transform agriculture? There are millions answers to this question, just as many as the number of researchers, political leaders and agricultural practitioners.
