Stanford won his award after demonstrating “a low-cost method of improving the nutritional value of agricultural residues that can be used as animal feed.

“His research elaborates a successful way of pasteurizing and incubating bagasse without the use of sterilization equipment.” His methods produced the same results as those of technologies used for nutritional value improvement.

Muyila’s research was presented at the Japan-China-Korea Grassland Conference for the 2018 Young Scientist Award. As part of his award, Muyila received a scholarship to pursue further studies in Japan through the JICA program of ABE Initiative for youth.

Muyila, who works in the Ministry of Agriculture in Malawi is as an Animal Health and Livestock Development Officer and currently studying towards a Masters degree at the Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine in Japan.
