Horticulture: Key Opportunities for Nutrition

The Horticulture Innovation Lab held a forum discussion of the relationship between horticulture and nutrition, July 9 in Washington, D.C.

The event included highlights of how the Horticulture Innovation Lab's research has related to nutrition during the program's first five years — including projects focused on African indigenous vegetables and orange- and purple-fleshed sweet potatoes.

The event also included facilitated discussion with participants about future directions, particularly about better incorporating nutrition into horticultural research projects.
