FIELD REPORT ON PARTICIPATORY COWPEA SEED BULKING WITH WOMEN FARMERS

Although African Leafy Vegetables have been recognized as contributing to food and nutrition security among rural poor, availability of seed continues to be a challenge. The University of Nairobi, in collaboration with KARI Mtwapa is conducting a participatory seed bulking of select superior local accessions of cowpea among women farmers in Kilifi County. The project is being conducted under the KAPAP Project “Enhancing Production, Value Addition and Marketing of Indigenous Vegetables (cowpea, spider plant, nightshades, amaranth, pumpkin), French Beans and Mushroom Products among Smallholder Farmers in Kenya” for a 3 year period from 2011-2014 by the University of Nairobi and other partners.

Dr Brande Wulff of John Innes Centre makes a presentation at the Department of Plant Science and Crop Protection, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Nairobi

The title of his presentation was “wheat stem rust: battling an old foe with cloned resistance genes from wild relatives.” The basis of his research is on how microbial effector proteins, their host targets, and plant immune receptors co-evolve. Global wheat production is threatened by stem rust and other diseases and this has led to high wheat yield reductions. The Wulff group uses mutational genomics to isolate and study genes that restrict wheat stem rust and septoria disease in wheat. Their long term goal is to isolate multiple resistance (R) genes and deploy them in combinations as single loci or stacks which
