Bridging Cassava to the Community: Simple Practices of Connecting Research-Industry-Community in Bogor Agricultural University (IPB)
Bridging Cassava to the Community: Simple Practices of Connecting Research-Industry-Community in Bogor Agricultural University (IPB)
Research activities to generate superior cassava varieties as well as to develop in vitro cassava seedling production system are continuously performed in Bogor Agricultural University (IPB). Designing research based on the industry- and community-demand is as important as delivering the research results to its users. Starting in 2016, the cassava research team in IPB implement simple practices to gain insights of market demand on cassava products and to deliver research results to the market.

Introducing New Cassava Varieties in North Sumatera and East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
Introducing New Cassava Varieties in North Sumatera and East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
Starting from 2016/2017, Indonesian Legumes and Tuber Crops Research Institute (ILETRI) and University of Brawijaya, through "Developing Value-Chain Linkages to Improve Smallholder Cassava Production Systems in Vietnam and Indonesia" activities, introducing cassava varieties to North Sumatera and East Nusa Tenggara. This activity is supported by the University of Queensland (Australia) and CIAT (International Center for Tropical Agricultural), funded by ACIAR (Australian Center for International Agricultural Research).

Capacity Building for Technical staff on Cassava in Cambodia
Capacity Building for Technical staff on Cassava in Cambodia Cassava is the second most important crops after rice in Cambodia. There have not been any cassava breeding programs yet in the country, so the major varieties growing in Cambodia are imported from neighboring countries such as Vietnam, Thailand and China.

CASSAVA VARIETAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM IN THE INSTITUTE OF PLANT BREEDING, UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES, LOS BAÑOS, PHILIPPINES
Cassava varietal improvement in the Philippines started in the 1960s at the Institute of Plant Breeding (IPB), University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). However in 1977, the Philippine Root Crops Research and Training Center (PhilRootcrops) was established at Visayas State University (VSU), formerly the Visayas State College of Agriculture (ViSCA), Baybay, Leyte, Philippines. The original aim of the improvement program was mainly on varietal trials of a few local and introduced varieties. The cassava varietal improvement program has resulted in the assemblage of a cassava germplasm, hybridization, evaluation, identification of elite lines and release of superior local and introduced varieties.

Rapid Mass healthy seed system of cassava developed by Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GXAAS)
Rapid Mass healthy seed system of cassava developed by Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GXAAS)
Cassava is traditionally propagated from stem cuttings. The rapid multiplication techniques could shorten the breeding schedule, quicken the distribution of new cultivars, produce disease-free materials of elite old cultivars and benefit the scientific research. For these reasons, Cassava team at Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GXAAS) successfully developed the rapid mass healthy seed system of cassava in these years.

BREEDING OF CASSAVA NEW CULTIVAR SC No.14
BREEDING OF CASSAVA NEW CULTIVAR SC No.14
Postharvest physiological deterioration (PPD) is a global challenge in the improvement of cassava value chain. However, how to reduce cassava spoilage and reveal the mechanism of injured cassava storage roots in response to PPD were poorly understood. Meanwhile, selecting new varieties with high tolerant with PPD is also the long-term aim for Chinese breeders.

STATUS OF ARTHROPOD PESTS AND DISEASES OF CASSAVA: SCREENING FOR RESISTANCE TO CASSAVA RED SPIDER MITE AND WITCHES’ BROOM IN THE PHILIPPINES
The long production cycle of 6 months to one year allows cassava to be exposed to attack of pests and diseases. Like any other commercially-grown crops, cassava production is beset with many pests and diseases problems which contribute to low productivity caused by high losses either in terms of root yield or in root quality. Damage done by pests and diseases is one of the reasons why yield of even high-yielding varieties is not achieved.
