Communication Team ICARDA. (1/1/1988). Food Legume Improvement Program 1988. Aleppo, Syrian Arab Republic: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
The crop improvement research was done at the principal research station of ICARDA at Tel Hadya, as well as at several subsites in northern Syria (Breda, Jinderess, and Lattakia) and Lebanon (Terbol). Weather condition prevailing during the season at each of these sites is depicted in Figures 11.1 to 11.5. In general, the season was wetter than the long-term average at all the test sites. For advancement of breeding material by an additional generation during summer, the high altitude research site of the Jordanian Ministry of Agriculture in Shawbak and the Terbol research station were utilized. Research sites of different national programs were also used for strategic joint research on development of breeding material with specific resistance to various abiotic and biotic stresses. In pursuance of the policy of decentralization of breeding efforts, activities expanded in the North African Regional Project and the FLIP scientist located at Morocco worked closely with the national program in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia and coordinated the activities of this regional network.
