Rwanda has very fertile soil and is also the most densely populated country in Africa. Traditionally farmers have grown bush beans, which take up more space per acre. Climbing bean varieties increase yields.
In December 2011, CIAT photographed the project, documenting farmer reaction and plant growth. In April 2012, The Guardian published some of these images in a photo gallery along with an accompanying article. The project continues to undergo formal review.
