マダガスカル圃場試験の設定と初期生育の生育評価および移植作業

December is the main rice transplanting season in Madagascar and I supervised the transplanting of two experiments testing breeding lines developed as part of our project, of two screening experiment evaluating tolerance to iron (Fe) toxicity and of an experiment testing whether using a Genomic Prediction model based on project data from the past two years would be successful in selecting highly adapted and high-yielding accessions from a rice gene bank. In addition, I held meeting with the director of our counterpart organizations FOFIFA and LRI to discuss general project matters, and with the head of the rice research division of FOFIFA to discuss funding and staff issues.
