Genetics of resistance to groundnut rosette virus disease
(African Crop Science Society, 2014)
Groundnut Rosette Virus disease (GRD) has long been regarded a major limiting biotic constraint to groundnut production in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The disease is caused by a complex of three viral components that interact ...
Prevalence of sorghum anthracnose in different agroecologies of Uganda
(National Agricultural Research Organisation, 2013)
Nine major sorghum growing agro-ecologies of Uganda were surveyed to establish the sorghum anthracnose incidence and severity. Hierarchical sampling was used. Severity of anthracnose in the field was rated on a scale of ...
Characterization and distribution of a Potyvirus associated with passion fruit woodiness disease in Uganda
(The American Phytopathological Society, 2012)
This article describes the incidence and etiology of a viral disease of passion fruit in Uganda. Symptoms, including those characteristic of passion fruit woodiness disease (PWD), were observed on 32% of plants in producing ...
Efficacy of manual seed sorting methods in reduction of transmission of rice and cowpea seed-borne diseases
(African Crop Science Society, 2005)
The production of rice and cow pea in Uganda is increasing in acreage rather than productivity. This is attributed to a number of factors, mainly seed-borne diseases. The farmers in Uganda mainly use farm saved seeds for ...
Genetic analysis of resistance to rice bacterial blight in Uganda
(African Crop Science Society, 2012)
Rice bacterial blight (Xanthomonas oryzae pv.oryzae) is a major constraint to rice (Oryza sativa L.) production in Uganda and as part of strategies to develop resistant cultivars, it is important to evaluate resistance of ...
Effect of crop protection management practice on yield of seven cowpea varieties in Uganda
(Taylor & Francis, 1996)
Field experiments were conducted during the first and second rainy seasons of 1994 to evaluate the seed yield potential of two commonly grown cowpea varieties and five introduced lines under different pest and disease ...
