Inheritance of resistance to rice yellow mottle virus disease in rice in Uganda
Rice Yellow Mottle Virus sobemovirus (RYMV) is highly variable and several resistance breaking strains have been identified. This makes breeding for durable resistant very complicated since a variety proven to be resistance ...
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 ...
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 ...
Effect of cultivar and thermotherapy combined with meristem-tip culture on eliminating prevalent viruses infecting potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) in Uganda
(Makerere University, 2015-07)
Virus infections in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) have negative effect on yield through accelerating seed tuber degeneration. Several methods have been proposed for virus elimination, however in-vitro thermotherapy combined ...
