  4. 4. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire About the Integrated Breeding Platform – IBP We come from the Generation Challenge Programme (GCP) • IBP is an extension of the GCP (2004-2014) • GCP is a 10-year framework (Phase I, 2004–2008; Phase II, 2009–2014) • Targets: Drought environments, developing countries, 18 and then 9 target crops • A consortium of Universities (5), CG Centers (9) and National Programmes (4)
  5. 5. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire The IBP Initiative Our mission is to accelerate the delivery of new improved crop varieties, following a demand-led crop variety development approach Building on the GCP network, we are a partner ready to lend expert assistance to have breeders and breeding Institutions (public and private) rising to a new level of breeding efficiency and innovation, focusing on the digitalization of their breeding operations We aim at sustainable adoption and implementation of modern crop data management approaches, and therefore have an educational mandate, working in close collaboration with local universities, and building internal capacity at target and partner Institutions The IBP is a not-for-profit entity, aiming at a dual funding system (public funds and income from paying users) for the sustainable development maintenance and development of its core product: the Breeding Management System (BMS)
  6. 6. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire The IBP Initiative… How we view our role? • We are here to enable national programme breeders to play a leading role in R4D by offering them access to modern breeding data management, marker technologies, breeding materials and related information in a centralised, integrated and practical manner • In the new area of big data management and the constant evolution of IT and ICT technologies, to digitalize breeding operations is a “Must Have” for any Institution dedicated to crop improvement Benefits and added value • Improve breeding effectiveness and efficiency (Data management, MB) • Increase quality control (data, seed, …) • Establish institutional data memory and ownership (staff turnover, IP) • Enable data sharing and analysis across teams/projects/institutes (Meta analysis) • Institutional visibility, facilitate networking and fund raising.

  8. 8. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire About the Breeding Management System - BMS What is the BMS? • An integrated software package designed to facilitate plant breeding logistics, data management, analysis and decision support for any crop • It contains a powerful database which automatically collects and integrates data from plant breeding activities such as genealogy, inventory, characterization and evaluation • This database becomes a permanent institutional knowledge resource to monitor progress and facilitate strategic decisions
  9. 9. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire Breeding Management System - BMS A suite of interconnected software applications specifically designed to help breeders manage their day-to-day activities: Programme management Customise preferences and monitor programme activities from the Workbench, a dashboard application with integrated tools to manage and query crop information across the system Marker-assisted breeding Select germplasm and design crosses by complementing phenotypic selection with marker technology, for integrated breeding decisions Breeding activities Prepare trials and nurseries, manage seed inventories and keep continuous genealogy records season after season Statistical analysis Analyse field and lab data with powerful statistics and mixed model comparisons of locations and genotypes

  13. 13. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire General overview • Enhancing institutional breeding capacity in Ghana, Senegal and Uganda to develop climate resilient crops for African smallholder farmers • Period: 36 months, starting in April 2018 • Targeted beneficiaries: – Smallholder farmers (10,000/country), – National breeding programmes (4 partner institutes; 10-15 programmes; 3 upgraded field stations), – Breeders (20 to 35 breeders), and – Universities (50 MSc and 5 PhD students). • Target at least 40% participation by women, especially at the student level.
  14. 14. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire Key activities • Activity 1 – Delivery chain and knowledge platform: Connecting the dots between breeders, extension workers and farmers • Engaging Smallholder farmers • Linking with the seed business • An online knowledge base • Activity 2 – Improved data management and digitalising breeding • BMS Deployment and Support • Data Integration and Sharing • Activity 3 – Breeding: integrating modern approaches • Breeding activity assessment • Modern Technologies • Activity 4 – Capacity enhancement (human and infrastructure) • Human Capacity • Improved Infrastructure
  15. 15. AfricaRice Science Week 2019 11-15 Feb 2019 , M’bé Research Station, Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire Drilling deeper in the delivery chain • Focus on commodity value chains for groundnut and rice in Senegal and Uganda, and rice in Ghana • A key aspect: ensuring farmer ‘buy-in’ on the basis of Participatory Varietal Selection (PVS) approaches (Existing initiatives) • They will also benefit from some guidance in agronomic practices to make optimal use of the new varieties
