This video, produced by AGCOM International - http://www.agcomintl.com - in 1998, tells the story of the participatory varietal selection (PVS) program and the early acceptance of the 'New Rice for Africa' (NERICA) by upland-rice farmers in West and Central Africa. Bintu, played by rice farmer Delphine Koudou, of Gagnoa, Côte d'Ivoire, is a composite of the farmers who were involved in this project.
