dc.description.abstractWarren Buffet's fourth son, Howard Buffet is an unassuming Illinois soybean and corn farmer. However, he plays a behind the scenes role in the global war against hunger. With a small portion of his father's fortune he spends much of the year traveling through Africa. Mr. Buffett is looking for ways to help African farmers increase their harvests without increasing their costs, thus his interest in developing plants that resist disease and drought.
