L. Bos. (30/4/1981). Addendum to first and second report on Virus diseases of Vicia Faba and some other crops in the Niley Valley and the Involvement of ICARDA. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
The author participated in the International Conference on Faba beans from 7 t o 11 March 1981 in Cairo, sponsored by ICARDA and IFAD Nile Valley Project in cooperation with the Government of Egypt. There, he presented a review paper on "virus diseases of faba beans" (Bos, 1981b) He also gave a seminar a t the Plant Pathology Institute, Agricultural Research Centre, Giza, on "applied research on plant viruses and virus diseases". After the conference he participated in part of the National Food Legume Seminar at Mariut on 13 and 14 March, and visited faba bean trials and seed production and farmers' fields a t Nubaria, Giza, and Seds. From March 15 to 20 he visited Lebanon and Syria for further visits to faba bean trials at Terbol in Lebanon and Tel Hadya and Lattaquieh in Syria and to ICARDA Research Station, Tel Hadya. This report further confirms and extends observations and conclusions concerning Sudan and Egypt, presented in two previous reports (Bos, 1980-1981a). This time, the number of observations made on virus diseases was limited because practically all field visits in Lebanon and Syria formed part of a general faba-bean excursion for foreign experts with diverse interests, who had participated in the above conference and seminar.
