The development of management strategies for maize streak virus disease. Final Technical Report.
The project completed the validation of a system whereby farmers were provided with knowledge of how to produce good quality seed of a superior MSV-resistant maize variety (Longe 1) through researchers collaborating with an NGO and several community-based organisations with locally developed training materials and farmers trained as trainers. The quality of the maize seed produced by the farmers was validated by on-station trials and the efficiency of the various training methods used was assessed by interviewing participitants.
