Finger millet blast in East Africa: Pathogen diversity and disease management strategies. Final Technical Report.

Abstract

Major project objectives were i) to characterise pathogen populations, understand the relationship between different types of blast, investigate the potential of seeds and weeds as inoculum sources and identify resistance sources, ii) to generate information on millet production in East Africa and farmers’ perception of the blast disease and constraints faced in management and iii) to contribute to local capability development and dissemination of outputs to target beneficiaries to ameliorate the constraint posed by blast, thus improving the livelihoods of resource poor farmers.
