Moussa Kante
Mali 2020
As a plant pathologist, Moussa Kante specialises in agronomic research on phytosanitary issues, the protection of plants and the environment in general, and, more specifically, on Cassava Bacterial Blight.  He is working to understand the current status of this disease (CBB) in new geographical areas. Ultimately, his research aims to provide a better understanding of the spread of this pathogen in production areas in order to help breeders select varieties with long-term resistance to CBB.
Moussa plans to improve his technical and scientific skills to further his professional development in his role as a lecturer and researcher.
