Evaluation of cassava genotypes for resistance to cassava brown streak disease (cbsd) in Uganda.
(Makerere University, 2013-09)
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Cranz) production in Uganda is being constrained by the devastating effects of cassava brown streak disease (CBSD). CBSD is caused by cassava brown streak virus (CBSV), which affects all parts ...
Development of cassava brown streak disease among selected cassava genotypes as influenced by amount of starting inocula and level of host tolerance.
(Makerere University, 2014-07)
Cassava brown streak disease (CBSD) is a major threat to cassava production in Uganda and the coastal areas of eastern Africa. The disease is caused by two ipomovirus species; Cassava brown streak virus (CBSV) and Ugandan ...
Degeneration in quality of cassava planting material due to infection by cassava brown streak viruses
(Makerere University, 2018-12)
This study aimed at quantifying degeneration of cassava planting materials as a result of infection by CBSVs. Four cassava varieties (NASE 14, NASE 15, NAROCASS 1 and TME 204) were evaluated for their responses and ...
The role of metabolites in cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) resistance to Whitefly (Bemisia tabaci)
(Makerere University, 2019-04)
The whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) (Gennadias, 1889) is a major challenge in cassava production especially for most African regions. This is because most of the varieties used are susceptible to the pest resulting in severe ...
