Nominations are open for the Africa Food Prize, with four weeks left to submit entries for those who have changed farming on the continent from a “struggle to survive to a business that thrives”.

The organisers say the $100,000 (£71,000) prize aims to highlight “bold initiatives and technical innovations that can be replicated across the continent”.

The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (Agra) is one of the sponsors of the award – and former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo will chair the panel that chooses the winner.

So if you know a farmer or project that should be up for consideration.
