  • Enhancing cowpea productivity and production in drought-prone areas in sub- Saharan Africa Abaidoo, R., Adamou, M., Amane, V., Bandyopadhyay, R., Boahen, S., Boukar, O., Coulibaly, O., Fatokun, C., Ishiyaku, M., Kumar, L., Mligo, J., Muranaka, S., Sonder, K., and Toure, M.
  • Test existing lines…..for adaptation to drought
  • Country Breeding line Main attribute Mali CZ1-94-23-1; IT93K-876-30 Drought tolerant Mozambique IT00K-1263; IT97K-1069-6 Drought tolerant Niger IT97K-499-38; IT98K-628 Drought tolerant Nigeria IT93K-452-1; (IT97K-499-35) Drought tolerant Tanzania IT99K-529-1; IT00K-1263 Drought tolerant IITA, Nigeria IT00K-901-5; IT98K-506-1; Drought IT00K-898-5 tolerant

  • Six elite cowpea lines introduced from IITA showed complete immunity to Striga gesnerioides in Magaria-Niger where the infestation was the highest. These resistant lines are: IT98K-1092-1, IT99K-573-1-1, IT98K-628, IT99K-1122, IT97K-205-8, and IT97K-499-38.
  • In Nigeria seven IITA developed elite breeding lines also showed no Striga emergence during the two dates of planting: IT99K-573-1-1, I T 9 9 K - 11 2 2 , I T 9 9 K - 4 9 4 - 6 , I T 0 4 - 2 2 7 - 4 , IT00K-1207, IT97K-819-118 and IT99K-529-2. Two of these (IT99K-573-1-1 and IT99K-1122) were also immune to Striga in Magaria-Niger.
  • Some farmers attracted to one of the test lines that showed promise of producing grain in the drought prone area of Hombolo. This cowpea line was at podding stage during the second planting when there was terminal drought.

  • Selected lines planted in demonstration plots
  • A demonstration plot in Mopti region - Mali
  • A lady farmer in Iringa Province, Tanzania

  • Groups of farmers assessing cowpea lines
  • Create populations segregating for drought tolerance and attendant traits
  • Grain yield (g/plant) and % yield reduction due to stress Genotype Grain yld Grain yld % yld Stressed Non stressed reduction IT98K-506-1 11.7 28.6 59 TVu522 11.8 12.6 6 TVu14676 6.7 11.9 44 TVu557 11.0 23.1 52 TVu813 6.9 52.4 87
  • Crosses made between drought tolerant lines and some breeding lines selected through FPVS Selected lines had: : lower seed yield reduction due to drought : high seedling recovery

  • Crosses made •  38 single crosses, F4 generation in the field •  88 three way crosses, F3 generation in the field •  Seeds for F5 and F4 generations available January 2010 for planting in Kano under irrigation
  • Training The following students are about completing their MSc degree programs in plant breeding: Mozambique: Henriques Colial and John Kaunda Tanzania: Didasi Tarimo and Kimaro Nigeria: Habibu Aliyu and Auwalu Adamu Umar Mali and Niger: Nominated students (Sory Diallo and Mamadou Diallo, Mali and Mohammed Bouzou and Moussa Bachari, Niger) could not get admitted for graduate studies
  • Challenges
  • Screening for resistance to aphid at seedling stage
  • Different races of Striga
  • Alectra vogelii parasitizing a cowpea plant
  • Lessons learnt  • Training at MSc level • The involvement of farmers, farmers’ groups and other stakeholders such as extension agents and NGOs help in getting developed technologies to where they would make necessary impacts. NGO’s, entrepreneurs and local Government officials were found helpful in pushing technologies to rural areas where most cowpea farmers are located. • Demonstration plots were found useful in getting farmers to accept improved lines more readily • Need to survey the diseases of cowpea in ESA.
