The African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE) is a network of 127 educational institutions in Africa whose objective is to strengthen the teaching of multi-disciplinary approaches to land management. The ANAFE Coordination Unit is hosted at the International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF) headquarters in Nairobi. This provides a vantage for network management, linkages with the research and development activities of ICRAF and its partners, and convenient communication facilities.
Developing drought and heat tole rance wheat germplasm and ist utilisation for the drylands of Central and West Asia and North Africa
Goal: To enhance the tolerance of wheat to drought and heat in the Mediterranean region in order to improve wheat productivity in the dryland and reduce risks in unfavorable agricultural environments Purpose: Phenotypic and genotypic evaluation of drought and heat response in wheat germplasm und controlled and field conditions Outputs: - Drought and heat responses characterized under field conditions - Promising durum and bread wheat lines characterised with drought /heat candidate genes and SSRs/DArT - QTL map developed - Existing mapping population will be phenotyped to further identify QTLs - Pyramiding of genes using DH (bread wheat) and MAS (durum) - Wheat germplasm evaluated by partner NARS in collaboration with resource poor farmers
Individual and combined effects of five quantitative trait loci on resistance to the parasitic weed Striga hermonthica in Sorghum bicolor under field conditions in Mali and Sudan
Goal: The resulting unique set of sorghum genotypes introgressed with different quantitative trait loci (genes) for striga resistance offer the exceptional possibility to investigate effects of the five different gene loci individually and in combination. It has therefore a high potential for developmental impact through more targeted plant breeding for striga resistance in sorghum and offers the possibility to identify adapted genotypes of sorghum with stable striga resistance which can be used directly as improved cultivars in four countries of Africa. Purpose: Analyse the individual and combined effect of 5 QTL for striga resistance in sorghum for future integrated striga management through MABC, and assist four NARS to verify the value of developed Striga resistant FPSVs to justify release into seed systems in Mali, Eritrea, Kenya and Sudan
