The Problem

Culture amelioration is one of the major worry of the research to combat millennium challenge (climate change, food security, growth population and other damages). In this context, creation and selection new varieties with a lot of characteristics such as: good productivity, disease resistant, high nutrition values, large adaptabilities capacities, are …

The Problem

Lengthy phytosanitary cleaning and screening procedures, used to prevent the spread of diseases through the distribution of plant material, are obstacles to the rapid dissemination and use of improved cultivars and genetic gain in clonal crops such as sweetpotato, yam, and cassava. Owing to the need for iterative phytosanitary therapy …
