Promotion of control measures for cassava brown streak disease – Final Technical Report

Hillocks, R.

The main focus of the present project was the promotion of control measures developed under project R7563. Initial on-farm research into roguing and selection of planting material was abandoned because of farmers’ hostility to a roguing and annual shortage of planting material. The project then focused exclusively on the dissemination of CBSD-tolerant varieties accompanied by an information campaign to raise farmers’ awareness of CBSD symptoms and the availability of tolerant varieties.
