Improving Farm Life in Haiti

Today, the front page of the University of Guelph website today is boasting an article about a research project aimed at researching sustainable farming methods for Haitian farmers. The lead researcher on the project is Manish Raizada is researching the potential of producing sustainable agriculture kits that could be distributed to small farms and improve their agricultural practices. This type of well thought out research is what Haiti really needs in this time of need, as opposed to the impact foreign intervention has had in the past as is mentioned in a recent Toronto Star article about the plight of creole pigs in rural Haiti.  Lets hope that their are good improving times arriving to Haitian farmers sooner rather then later!
