    Professor Gleadow’s group is working to determine just what those levels might be as part of an investigation into the impact that different climatic conditions will have on cassava and the implications for human food supplies, nutrition and safety through
    new research in collaboration with Australia’s national research organisation, CSIRO, funded by the Australian Centre for
    International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
    "Achieving food security is not only about increasing yields, but also ensuring that food remains safe and nutritious,” Professor Gleadow says. etc.
