    1. 1. Seminar on Agriculture – Nutrition Linkages 18 April 2011 Dhaka, Bangladesh AVRDC – The World Vegetable Center in Bangladesh: Past, Current and Future Ray-Yu Yang (Nutritionist) and Peter Hanson (Plant Breeder) AVRDC – The World Vegetable CenterSlide 1 www.avrdc.org
    2. 2. Research to promote development  Founded in 1971 as the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC) with a regional research focus on Asia  Our research and development is nonprofit  Our research outputs are global public goods  The World Vegetable Center has an expanding global role with a growing network of regional officesSlide 2 www.avrdc.org

    5. 5. Contribution of vegetables to human nutrition and health Consumption Nutrient X density X Bio-availability • Increased access, • Improved nutrient • Enhanced nutrient availability, and and bioactive retention and consumption of bioavailability phytochemical vegetables contents = Nutrition and health outcome • Assessing the outcomes from the consumption of vegetables on diet, nutrition and overall economic development.Slide 5 www.avrdc.org

    7. 7. AVRDC in Bangladesh 1991 – 2006 • AVRDC Germplasm distribution: – 3454 accessions (59 crops) provided to BARI, NARS institutions, private seed companies, and NGOs • AVRDC improved varieties – 18 lines released in Bangladesh • Bangladesh vegetable germplasm collection and conservation: – 994 acc (50 species) collected in Bangladesh and conserved at AVRDC – 764 acc (26 species) distributed in Bangladesh to promote utilizationSlide 7 www.avrdc.org
    8. 8. Opportunity: (1) Expand production and availability of nutritious food during food scarcity periods • Identification of local vegetables with high nutrient content and special adaptation to abiotic stresses (flooding, heat, salinity) for production during food scarcity periods Bangladesh Crop Calendar Source: Dr. Rezaul Karim Crop M A M J J A S O N D J F Kharif Crops Aus Rice p p g g g g G g h h B Aman Rice p p g g g g G g g g g g g g g g h h T Aman Rice P p p p p p g g g g g h h h White Jute p p p g g g g G h h h h Tossa Jute p p g g G g g h h h h Mesta p p p p g G g g g g g g h h h h Bhadoi Chili p p p p P p g g g h h h h h h h h Turmeric h p p p p G g g g g g g g g g g g h h h h h Ginger h p p p p g g G g g g g g g g g g g g h h h h h Rabi Crops Local Boro Rice g g h h h h p p p p g g g HYV Boro Rice g g g h h h h H p p p p p g Wheat h h h p p p p g g g g Masur Pulse h p p g g g g g h h Kheshari Pulse h p p g g g g g g h Rabi Chili h h h h h h p p p p g g g Onion g g g h h h h p p p p p g g g g g Coriander h h p p p p p p g g g h Potato h p p p p g g g g h h h Tobacco h p p p p g g g g h Annual Crops Sugarcane g g g g g g g G g g g g g g g h h p p g g g g gSlide 8 www.avrdc.org
