Dr George Bigirwa Associate Program Director, Program for Africa's Seed System, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA)
Dr Bigirwa, a Ugandan national, holds a PhD in Plant Pathology. He has worked in various disciplines including crop breeding that resulted in the release of six maize and five rice varieties widely grown in Uganda and the neighboring countries of Tanzania, Rwanda, DR Congo and Southern Sudan. Prior to joining AGRA, Dr Bigirwa worked for 22 years with Uganda's National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO). He served as NARO's National Coordinator of Maize and Rice Research, a post he held for 8 years. Dr Bigirwa has chaired the Maize and Wheat Network for Eastern and Central Africa (ECAMAW) and the East and Central Africa Rice Research Network (ECARRN), and has been instrumental in linking private seed companies to public research institutions throughout the region - linkages that are critical to expediting smallholder farmer access to new varieties.
