CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Future possibilities.

It has been claimed that Ganoderma-resistant oil palm material holds the greatest hope for the future control of basal stem rot (BSR) in South-east Asia. Conventional breeding currently requires germplasm with resistance and a phenotypic screening in both the nursery and the field. A better method...

Cover for Collecting <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ganoderma</i> isolates and culture preparation.

Ganoderma may be isolated from the basidiocarp (the sporophore of basidiomycete), infected palm tissues (trunk or roots) or from single basidiospores; these sources produce abundant Ganoderma mycelia in culture (Ho and Nawawi, 1986). Water agar (WA) or Ganoderma selective medium (GSM) is used as...

Cover for Media preparation for <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in vitro</i> culture of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ganoderma</i>.

The preparation of growth media is the first step in isolating any microorganism (bacteria and fungi) from the environment. Media may be solid or liquid. The culture medium formulation will affect the success of mycelium growth in culture. Although there are many culture media described for fungi,...

Cover for Services in irradiation treatments.

Physical mutagens, particularly gamma and X-rays, are well established in plant mutation breeding. Although gamma irradiation has been predominant, it involves the use of radioactive isotopes and requires specialist facilities (gamma cells, gamma houses and gamma fields). X-ray machines are more...

Cover for Protocol for developing mutant generations for mutant selection.

A practical step-by-step protocol is presented for mutation induction and mutation detection in oil palm. Germinated seed is chosen as the target material for mutation induction, as this provides the quickest development of mutant populations (as discussed in Chapters 3 and 4 of this manual). The...

Cover for Options for mutation breeding in oil palm.

Theoretical and practical options for mutation breeding in oil palm are discussed. In theory, haploids are considered the ideal targets, as the induced mutation can be fixed instantly on conversion to doubled haploids. However, haploid/doubled haploid technology is in its infancy in oil palm and...

Cover for New technology, ethical tensions and the mediating role of translational research.

This chapter presents two cases that relate to innovations in smallholder contexts, where food insecurity and a changing climate create a context of vulnerability framed by uncertainty and risks. The innovations (genetically modified cassava for smallholder farming in Kenya and remote-sensing...
