Haiti - Agriculture : Michigan State University supports South-West
The East Lansing school announced this week that the US Agency for International Development (USAID) focused on producing beans for food and household income in Haiti. Researchers are working to have 6,000 Haitian farmers in the Southwest receive high yielding bean varieties.

The operation is called "Mwen Gen Pwa" (I Have Beans).

USAID contacted Michigan State University because of its expertise on beans adapted to Central America and the Caribbean. The East Lansing school has also been approached for its long-term work with the Haitian National Seed Service (SNS) and the distribution of bean seeds.

Michigan State University will use a federal grant of approximately $2 million to help the South-West of Haiti to restore its agricultural production after the passage of Hurricane Matthew last October.
