Transcript of "Projet afro weeds"

  1. 1. AfroWeeds
  2. 2. African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP Secretariat)   ACP Science and Technology Programme 
  3. 3. African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP Secretariat)   ACP Science and Technology Programme  AfroWeeds African Weeds of Rice
  4. 4. AfroWeeds • ACP Science and Technology Programme • Ref.: EuropeAid/127860/D/ACT/ACP • CIRAD et AfricaRice 36 months • Start October 2009
  5. 5. Relevance of the Action • Rice is one of the major cereals consumed in Africa • Rice production / increasing consumption
  6. 6. Evolution of rice consumption and production in SSA (million tonnes)
  7. 7. Relevance of the Action • Rice is one of the major cereals consumed in Africa • Rice production / increasing consumption • Rice prices / increasing • Africa is heavily dependent on the international market • Lowland rice production systems / 52% of the total area under rice in Sub-Saharan Africa
  8. 8. Relevance of the Action • Limited production / ineffective control of weeds (responsible to 28-89 % of yield losses) • Better productivity – effective weed control – effective adoption result
  9. 9. Specific problems • Integrated weed management / knowledge of weed biology and ecology • Extension services and researchers of National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) or Universities / a lack of information on problem weeds – weeds identification – weeds biology – management practices
  10. 10. Relevance of the proposal • New science and technology framework – weed research – management in rice production • Centralised platform of information on the major weeds
  11. 11. The specific objectives • Consolidation of existing scientific knowledge for the weed species of irrigated and rain-fed lowland rice • Enhancing exploitation and dissemination of best weed management practices
  12. 12. Benin Senegal Mali Burkina Faso Ivory Coast Ghana Nigeria Tchad Niger Guinea Kenya Tanzania Uganda Mozambique Madagascar
  13. 13. Outputs and expected results • Established and consolidated networks at intra-ACP level • Fully functional website containing the knowledge base on the weed species • Computer tool for identification and information on rice weeds for Africa • Concise paper version of the knowledge base – information flow for the extension workers – disseminating scientific knowledge
