Annual Report
2015 - 2016

Ground-penetrating radars (GPRs) are used to see what’s below the ground. In 2014 when CIAT began using this technology to assess cassava root development, GPRs were the size of large vacuum cleaner. Today, they look more like a smart phone on a selfie stick and can detect biomass without disrupting soil, which is essential for efforts to improve crops.
