  10. 10. 1. Reduce impact of CMD disease Germplasm evaluation, multiplication and distribution strategies• The Problem• Imminent and increasing possible threat of the Ugandan strain of the CMD virus to the Nigerian cassava economy• Proposed solution• Pre-emptive management of CMD through rapid deployment CMD-resistant, high yielding cultivars• Constraints• IITA cannot release a cassava variety in Nigeria• Variety release process in Nigeria takes from 6 to 8 years (no release of new cassava variety from 1986 to 2004)• Fast track participatory selection approach (FTPSA)• All executing agencies involved in variety release participate from the onset in a combined series of trials executed concurrently for 2 years.
