WACCI Alumni Spotlight: Highlighting the achievements of our alumni: Dr Maxwell Asante

We are constantly amazed by our alumni and how much they’ve achieved since graduating from WACCI. We’re happy to bring you #WACCIAlumniSpotlight highlighting the achievements of our alumni.

Congratulations to our first Spotlight alumnus Dr Maxwell Asante. He was funded by the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) for his PhD and received a follow up to further his research after graduation giving him a platform to raise other bigger resources.


Dr Asante graduated in 2013 and has since released 7 rice varieties, authored 49 publications and he attracted funds worth $1.5 million from various donors to support his work


We are proud of you! Keep up the good work!
