NERICA Genotypes Cultivation Ecosystems and Research Interphase in doubling Rice Production in Sub-Saharan Africa
Speaker : Dr. John Collins Onyango
(Professor / Dean, Faculty of Science, Maseno University, Kenya / JSPS Fellow Researcher, Graduate School of Bioagricultural Sciences, Nagoya University)
Language : English
NERICA rice is expected to play a key role in food production and cash economy in Sub-Sahara Africa rice production ecosystems. Some research conducted at Maseno University in Western Kenya and ICCAE-GSAS, Nagoya University since 2006 has shown good relationship between NERICA productivity and response to mild soil moisture stress and Nitrogen fertilization. Results from these experiments will be presented as one of the strategies of doubling rice production in Sub-Saharan Africa by 2018.
