- ... Virus diseases are among the main biotic factors constraining common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) production in Tanzania. Disease management requires information on types, distribution, incidence, and genetic variation of the causal viruses, which is currently limited. Thus, a countrywide comprehensive survey was conducted. Use of a next-generation sequencing technique enabled simultaneous detecti ...

- ... Cassava varieties resistant to cassava mosaic disease (CMD) and cassava brown streak disease (CBSD) are needed for the food and income security of the rural poor in eastern and southern Africa (ESA). The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture led five national cassava breeding programs (Malawi, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda) in virus-cleaning and exchanging elite cassava germplas ...
