Enhancement of native Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF) for adaptation to drought spell and sustainable yield increase in small holder farmers’ fields

Enhancement of native Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF) for adaptation to drought spell and sustainable yield increase in small holder farmers’ fields (cf 1602-002)

The proposed work aims to use AMF (Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi) to enhance yam resilience to climate change and to improve the livelihood of rural yam farmers. This will be through the isolation, multiplication, and packing of indigenous AMF that will be readily available for their use.

Enhancing Modelling Skills for Agronomists and Crop Scientists

Modelling is a technique used in agronomic research to analyse, predict and project the interactions between genotype, environment and management in agro-ecosystems. Its use in agronomic advisory services and plant breeding is also developing rapidly in France and worldwide, in both private and public sectors. There is a current deficit of people with modelling skills in the European and global job market and that our project aims to (...)

Ensuring the future of perennial crops in Southeast Asia in a context of gobal change : case of Garcinia fruit tree species.

Southeast Asian rainforests host a remarkable biodiversity. This natural heritage is seriously threatened from deforestation and climate change. To ensure that crop production meets future needs, genetic diversity (the source of adaptation and improvement) needs to be conserved in cultivated and in close wild relative species. Yet, determining wild ancestors of perennial crops is very complex. For a large number of cultivated plants, we (...)

Epidemiological surveillance of Ralstonia solanacearum, causal agent of bacterial wilt of solanaceous crops, in the South-West Indian Ocean islands and Eastern Africa, diversity and genetic structure of populations

Epidemiological surveillance of plant pathogens allowing identification of emerging clones escaping control strategies and tracing of bacterial strains are of great importance for integrated plant protection. Ralstonia solanacearum is the causal agent of bacterial wilt one of he most damaging plant bacterial diseases worldwide.

Essences Forestières Indigènes dans les Systèmes Agroforestiers

The project aims to strengthen the economic potential of agroforestry sectors in Côte d’Ivoire through the identification, promotion and propagation of productive and resilient material. More specifically, it focuses on the development of three priority species due to their high economic development potential (Parkia biglobosa, Pterocarpus erinaceus, Khaya senegalensis). Parkia biglobosa is a food species, P. erinaceus and K. senegalensis (...)

Establishment of a new platform for the analysis of the oxygen isotopic ratio in phosphate extracted from environmental samples : a new opportunity to unravel the rol eof biological processes in P cycling.

A new platform for the analysis of the oxygen isotopic ratio in phosphate extracted from environmental samples: An opportunity to unravel the role of biological processes in P cycling Phosphorus (P) is an essential element for crop productivity. An alternative to mineral P inputs from fertilizers is to increase P cycling in soil, e.g. through the release of phosphate from organic P compounds. Such strategies could rely on a better use of (...)

Etude de l’évolution du développement reproductif dans le genre Oryza pour l’amélioration de riz cultivé moderne

Food production and security will be a major issue for supplying an increasing world population. Rice is one of the major staple crops in the world, providing for the food needs of billions of people daily. A sustainable increase in productivity, especially in developing countries, requires plant material with improved yield potential that is more stress tolerant and more efficient in resource use. Panicle branching complexity, which shows (...)

Champignons comestibles et Biofertilisation

Etude des caractéristiques nutritionnelles des champignons comestibles analysés précédemment en tant qu’agents biofertilisants

Fungi are particularly valued as subsistence foods in many developing countries, where they make a significant food contribution in central and southern Africa during months of the year when the food supply is inadequate. Like many soil microorganisms, they have physiological properties that allow them to feed on organic and inorganic soil substrates. As these properties are involved in the maintenance of soil fertility, these fungi could (...)

EUCARPIA Genetic Resources 2017

Support to the EUCARPIA conference which will take place from 8 to 11 May 2017 in Montpellier. The overall theme of the conference will be "Crop diversification in a changing world. Mobilizing the green gold of plant genetic resources." An emphasis will be placed on the exploitation of genetic resources in plant breeding. The titles of the plenary sessions are PGR conservation - in nature, in production systems and in genebanks (...)

Applicabilité d’un adjuvant anti-dérive

Evaluation de la taille et de la vitesse des gouttes avec adjuvants.

Pesticide spray drift is a great concern because of both human and environmental impacts. Drift reducing measures in Europe generally encompasses vegetation stripes along water courses combined with drift reducing techniques such as air induction spray nozzles. Up to now the drift reducing capability of spray adjuvants is not really considered by regulators. The in-field measurement of spray drift is subjected to high variations due to wind (...)
