Research Areas





Start Date: 1 April 2012 | End Date: 31 March 2013


This project seeks two main objectives:

  • To identify QTL for Nitrogen Use Efficiency trait, particularly biological nitrification inhibition (BNI) in Brachiaria and to assess the benefit of BNI trait in cropping system
  • To develop a cassava network in Asia to strengthen collaborative research on molecular beeding, seed sytem and capacity building for cassava improvement
