Wageningen University has provided research support to Yalelo since it’s earliest days, by providing researchers to help build the capacity of Yalelo’s Research and Development Team that monitors the environmental impact that the farm has, with a particular focus on water quality.

In 2019 Wageningen will potentially support various research projects in relation to water quality and environmental sustainability.
