Abstract

Yam production is constrained by the limited availability and high cost of quality seed due to its slow vegetative propagation ratio. Micropropagation using nodal and meristem explants have been used to produce clean plantlets, with a 1:4 multiplication ratio for nodal explants and 1:1 ratio for...

Abstract

Several alternative options have been used for varietal identification. However most of the traditional methods have inherent uncertainty levels and estimates often have wide confidence intervals. In an attempt to circumvent traditional survey-based measurement errors in varietal identification,...

Abstract

In Senegal, as in most tropical countries, genetic improvement has always been the cornerstone of dairy policies. Since the first experiments in 1964, the crossings of low-producing indigenous breeds with high-value exotic breeds has always been the main strategy to increase milk production in the...

Abstract

In Senegal, demand for milk and other dairy products is steadily rising, along with population growth, urbanization and the changing dietary behaviour of the population. However, national milk production is unable to satisfy rising demand due to the low productivity of local breeds and the limited...
