  • Priority opportunities include extension and demonstration of improved and resistant varieties to farmer groups, crop rotation for disease prevention, improved cultural practices and IPM methods.

These draft priority problems and opportunities are based on feedback from Alan Walters (SIU) and publications by Professor Norgul Hamza khil.
