Masafumi Tamura. (14/11/2016). Technical Report: Training Course on Cereal Crops Breeding - April 18-29, 2016.
The training course on Cereal Crops Breeding was designed to improve capacity of scientists and technicians in National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) in the partner countries to foster the transfer of technology on cereal crops breeding. The course covered a wide range of science and technology of breeding to adress both classical and molecular approaches of cereals breeding developed by ICARDA that included origin and distribution of cereals, production status of cereals, major production constrainst and challenges, breeding for wide adaptation, breeding for heat and drought tolerance, breeding for resistance to rusts and major insect pests, breeding for better quality and statistical analysis of breeding data.
