32 Steve Beebe Objective4 Work Plan

  1. 1. Drought Science: CIAT and Partners Ethiopia -Breeding -Physiology -Quality lab CIAT HQ Kenya -TL-1 lab work -Training -Expl. breeding -Breeding efforts (e.g., testing parentals) N. Tanzania -Pre-breeding (interspecifics) Malawi -Physiology -Training -Breeding Zimbabwe
  2. 2. Work plan, National Programs, 2010 Yield testing M & E on Seed production Breeding on on farm & on preliminary station incl. PVS station “adoption” Ethiopia 9 lines X 100 kg nucleus > 15 lines seed x 2 selected by materials farmers Kenya 25 X “ “ “ “ Malawi 23 X “ “ “ “ Tanzania 20 X “ “ “ “ Zimbabwe 120 X
  3. 3. Work plan, CIAT, 2010 Develop Develop 10 Selection Andean Commercial database interspecific of F2 pops sources, Andeans, sources 50% better 30% better HQ X X X X Kenya X X X Malawi X X X
  4. 4. Phase 2, Objective 1 specific to beans •  Explore varieties in context of other coping strategies
  5. 5. Phase 2, Objective 4 FAST TRACK REGIONAL NURSERIES •  Compile best lines in region into nurseries based on grain type, etc – a mechanism to extend results to new partners •  Explore utility of tepary (already in use in Burkina Faso)
  6. 6. Phase 2, Objective 4 •  Maintain current 5 •  Broaden geographic core countries scope –  East-Southern Africa –  Ethiopia •  Burundi –  Kenya •  Mozambique –  Malawi •  Rwanda •  S. Tanzania –  N. Tanzania •  Zambia –  Zimbabwe –  West Africa (after diagnostics) •  Burkina Faso •  Central Afr. Republic •  Mali? •  Togo
  7. 7. Phase 2, Objective 4 BREEDING •  Build on 3 current breeding sites •  Follow up on current populations (2010) •  Create new populations (2011-12) –  Regional selections –  Novel sources and traits •  Deploy markers from TL-1 –  CBB –  Storage insects
  8. 8. Phase 2, Objective 4 •  Explore potential of traits from runner bean and tepary –  Roots with penetration potential –  Non-wilting (what is the mechanism?) –  Rapid pod elongation –  High temperature tolerance •  Broaden evaluation of canning quality and cooking time •  Links to biofortification!! •  Supply lines to N2FixAfrica –  Details TBD –  What about climbers?
  9. 9. Phase 2, Objective 4 •  Capacity building – Finish Ph.D. theses and 1 M.Sc. – Field training for new comers in drought – Strengthen capacity in •  Quality •  BNF •  MAS
  10. 10. Phase 2, Objective 8 specific to beans •  Studies and training in •  Seed pathology / quality •  Saprophytes
