The burdens of malnutrition, protein and micronutrient deficiency, and obesity cause enormous costs to society. Crop nutritional quality has been compromised by the emphasis on edible yield and through the loss of biodiversity due to the introduction of high-yielding, uniform cultivars. Heirloom crop cultivars are traditional cultivars that have been grown for a long time (>50 years), and that have a heritage that has been preserved by regional, ethnic, or family groups. Heirlooms are recognized...

Introduction Abiotic stresses may account up to 71% yield reduction in crops (Boyer, 1982). In this regard, access and control to water resources are becoming among the most important issues of this 21st century. On-going climate change also influences water supply by affecting rainfall and evapo-transpiration. Today 450 million people are subject to severe water shortage and in 2025 this number may be about 2.7 billion (or 1/3 of world's population). Statistics show that in the USA insurance in...

Durum wheat is an important food crop in the world and an endemic species of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). In the highlands of Ethiopia and the oases of the Sahara this crop has been cultivated for thousands of years. Today, smallholder farmers still grow it on marginal lands to assure production for their own consumption. However, durum wheat is no longer just a staple crop for food security but has become a major cash crop. In fact, the pasta, burghul and couscous industry currently purchase durum...

High-throughput field phenotyping has garnered major attention in recent years leading to the development of several new protocols for recording various plant traits of interest. Phenotyping of plants for breeding and for precision agriculture have different requirements due to different sizes of the plots and fields, differing purposes and the urgency of the action required after phenotyping. While in plant breeding phenotyping is done on several thousand small plots mainly to evaluate them for...

The devastating threat of black leaf streak disease caused by Pseudocercospora fijiensis on plantain production in West Africa spurred the development of resistant hybrids. The goal of this research and development (R&D) undertaken was assessing the development and dissemination of two plantain hybrids PITA 3 and FHIA 21 bred in the 1980s by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA, Nigeria) and the Fundacion Hondurena de Investigacion Agricola (FHIA, Honduras), respectively. In...

East African highland bananas (EAHB) were regarded as sterile. Their screening for female fertility with ‘Calcutta 4’ as male parent revealed that 37 EAHB were fertile. This was the foundation for establishment of the EAHB crossbreeding programs of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) in Uganda in the mid-1990s. The aim of this study was to assess the progress and efficiency of the EAHB breeding program at IITA, Sen...

Synopsis Population growth and rising incomes put pressure on agri-food systems to deliver sufficient safe and nutritious food. Global warming and demand for more food challenge sustaining ecosystem health. World population also suffers from hunger, micronutrient deficiency, and overweight or obesity. The business as usual approach for agriculture is neither environmentally friendly nor achieve food and nutritional security. The way food is produced, processed, distributed and consumed must ther...

Despite the likely increasing co-occurrence of drought and heat stress, not least in equatorial regions, due to climate change, little is known about the combinational effect of these stresses on rice productivity and quality. This study evaluated the impact of simultaneous drought and temperature stress on growth, grain yield, and quality characteristics of seven rice cultivars from Rwanda, grown in climate chambers. Two temperature ranges—23/26 °C night/day and 27/30 °C night/day—together with...
