  • 1. Enhancing groundnut productivity and production in drought-prone areas of SSA : drought prone areas of SSA WCA and SEA: WCA B Ntare, F Waliyar , J Ndjeunga & NARES in Mali, Niger and Nigeria
  • 2. Outline •  Enhancing productivity •  Technology development •  Capacity building •  Outlook
  • 3. Enhancing Productivity •  FPVS –  Variety evaluation & preference •  Enhancing farmers’ awareness •  Nucleus & breeder seed production
  • 4. Project locations Tropical Legumes II sites •  Major groundnut basins •  Mother & Baby methodology
  • 5. Varieties tested Baby trials (360, 325) Country Number Major traits Mali 8 Drought, diseases, early maturity Niger 6 Early maturity, tolerant to Mother trials (46, 24) aflatoxin Nigeria 6 Early/medium maturity & rosette resistant 25-36 farmers
  • 6. Preferred varieties • 30-40% higher pod and fodder yield • early maturing Fleur 11 and resistant to rosette • Seed size & color ICIAR 19BT RRB
  • 7. Getting the word across • Workshops • Field days • Group meetings
  • 8. How is the information diffused?  Brochures and flyers  Press releases, radio and television emissions
