Overview of rice breeding task force and data management strategies

  1. 1. Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop Overview of Africa Rice Breeding Task Force Ibnou Dieng, biometricianon behalf of Moussa Sie, Senior Breeder & Africa Rice Breeding Task Force Coordinator AfricaRice Cotonou, Benin, 22-25 November 2011
  2. 2. OutlineA. Overview of the Africa RiceBreeding Task Force1. Introduction2. Objectives3. Partnership4. General approachesB. Data management strategies Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  3. 3. 1. Introduction: history of partnership• IRTP - 1985 1990s • ROCARIZ - 2000• CORAF Rice • WARDA working • … network - 1986 group -1990 • INGER - 1991 • WCA breeding TF - 1992 1980s 2000s Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  4. 4. 1. Introduction: call for a Task Force 1. Despite a long tradition of partnership, rice breeders in SSA are always an endangered species 2. To overcome this situation, the Second Africa Rice Congress (march 2010) called for the revival of the successful Task Force approach, 3. For an improved research and extension capacity on the continent through a collaborative approach to rice breeding Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  5. 5. 2. Objectives: 1. General objective • To accelerate the development and deployment of the next generation of elite rice varieties for major production systems in SSA.Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  6. 6. 2. Objectives:2. Specific objectives• Adopt a systematic collaborative approach to rice breeding• Facilitate access of African rice breeders to new materials• Stimulate rice germplasm evaluation across the continent,• Shorten the time needed to deploy new rice varieties for major productions systems in SSA Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  7. 7. 3. Principles of partnershipBring together both Nationaland International riceresearchers as a regional groupfor a well focused andsustainable approach to theproblem Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  8. 8. 3. Principles of partnershipThe Task Force consists ofan Africa-wide collective researchfor development effort on criticalthematic areas in the ricesector, based on the principles of1. sustainability,2. buildup of critical mass,3. and ownership by NARS Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  9. 9. 4. General Approaches of BTF1. Enhance collaboration with NARS breeders to improve adaptability of new germplasm to farmer growth conditions and consumer preferences, through• early involvement of NARS breeders and farmers in the varietal development and testing process, and• more effective and faster variety testing and release mechanisms Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  10. 10. 4. General Approaches of BTF1. Coordinator of Africa Breeding Task Force: Dr. Sie Moussa, senior breeder2. Regional breeding coordinators lead breeding teams for all major mega- environments:• WCA – irrigated lowland, rainfed lowland, upland, other ecosystems (mangrove, deep water)• ESA – irrigated and rainfed lowland, upland, high elevation Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  11. 11. 4. General Approaches of BTF1. Platform to evaluate lines in multi- environment using the same evaluation method2. From 500 lines in regional trial to 5 nominated line per year Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  12. 12. 4. General Approaches of BTF1. The breeding lines are provided by partners 13% (IARCs, NARS) 39%2. For example, in 34% 2011, 13% of the breeding lines were 14% nominated by NARS, 34% by AfricaRice, 14% by IRRI and 39% by CIAT NARS AfricaRice IRRI CIAT Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  13. 13. 4. General Approaches of BTFIn addition to standardizingrice breeding practices andto facilitating experience-sharing for problem solvingA key issue is3. Capacity building• Experimental designs• Germplasm database management• Data collection and analysis• Support MSc and PhD students Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  14. 14. 4. General Approaches of BTFA Web site has been developed http://www.africarice.org/afribreed/• Share information and documents within the TF and from TF to the public• Jointly write documents online• Plan activities and share calendars1. Public: the users will be able to see generalinformation only 2. Members: the Task Force national focal point cansee, add, delete, and modify any section of the site. Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  15. 15. Visit with Dr. Maji Nigerian breeder Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  16. 16. 2010 Monitoring tour for some key sites Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  17. 17. AfricaRice Breeding Task Force Annual Meeting Data management strategies Ibnou Dieng, biometrician AfricaRice Cotonou, Benin, 22-25 November 2011
  18. 18. Introduction1. Data is the driven force behind any successful business2. The use of standard data formats for documenting experiments and modeling crop growth and development can greatly facilitate exchange of information and software, allowing researchers to focus on science rather than on re-formatting data Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  19. 19. The information challenge1. Where is my information?2. How do I get it when I need it?3. What does it mean?4. Can I trust it?5. How do I get it in the form I need?6. How do I get it where it needs to go?7. How do I control it? Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  20. 20. Some existing tools1. Some largest sustained effort to promote the use of standards in relation to field research:• International Benchmark Soils Network for Agrotechnology Transfer (IBSNAT) -• International Consortium for Agricultural Systems Analysis (ICASA)• Integrated Breeding Platform (GCP) Agronomy & processing and value addition task force workshop
  21. 21. ICASA standards: the goal1. To provide a reliable, portable, and flexible structure both for documenting field experiments (or their equivalents in greenhouses or growth chambers) and for specifying realistic conditions for running dynamic simulation models. AfricaRice Breeding Task Force Annual Meeting, Cotonou, 11-12 May 2011
  22. 22. Relations among subsets in one experiment dataset AfricaRice Breeding Task Force Annual Meeting, Cotonou, 11-12 May 2011
  23. 23. Data collection and submission1. Automatic data gathering using handheld device (tablets).2. Development of a web- portal application between the partners to ensure on- line submission of the data, including metadata and raw data AfricaRice Breeding Task Force Annual Meeting, Cotonou, 11-12 May 2011
