Breeding for extra-early and medium maturity types to fit in rice-pigeonpea cropping sequence

Development of high-yielding varieties with multiple resistance to major diseases/pests such as YMV, Cercospora leaf spot, etc. Breeding for multiple resistance to biotic (wilt, sterility mosaic, etc.) and abiotic (terminal moisture stress, temperature, etc.) impacts. Development of integrated crop production and protection technologies suitable for sole cropping and double cropping systems including IPM.

Integration of multiple resistances to biotic and abiotic stresses (Fusarium wilt, root rot, drought, high temperatures, etc.). Development of high-yielding varieties that are tolerant to biotic and abiotic stresses in various pulse crops.

Formulation of IPM modules for different pulse crops

Using molecular techniques (MAS) for incorporation of biotic and abiotic stress resistance in locally adapted varieties

The following activities would be involved in achieving this objective: .. i) Multi-site evaluation of sunflower hybrids from India in Myanmar for identification of promising hybrids, standardization of their hybrid seed production technology, large-scale seed production and their adoption in relevant areas. . . ii) Identification and development of new maintenance and restoration lines using locally adapted genetic background for the development of heterotic hybrids. Post-harvest technology in Myanmar was included as one of the main focus areas for the establishment of IM-ACARE. It was strongly felt that IARI should serve a leading role in establishing IM-ACARE Post-harvest Technology Division dealing with post-harvest management and value addition of horticulture and agriculture:.'9pt' Opportunity for research and development of this department will be unique because of its strong feedback links with the production technology of agro-horticultural products at the Yezin Agricultural University and the Department of Agricultural Research, Yezin, together with the extension mechanism within the Myanmar Agricultural Service.

This center aims to serve as an excellent coordination between research, teaching and extension activities under one umbrella in the field of post-harvest handling and freezing of agro-horticultural products; and maintaining quality and safety of the chopped p.oduc. To begin with, the department can initiate the program focusing on "prrr and value addition of lgri products with the broad framework for future expansion to other state-of-art areas. It was felt that the scientists of the PHT department of IMACARE must work on project mode as multidisciplinary team as mentioned below.

The Division is intended to develop and implement appropriate modern models for effective and efficient transfer of scientific and technological knowledge to the farmers and other stakeholders. In addition, the division is also intended to undertake research work for on-farm technology assessment and refinement with active participation of the staff of IM-ACARE & Myanmar Agricultural Service; farmers and; other stakeholders so that effective crop and location specific technologies can be developed. Divisiorr is also entrusted with the development of audio and or visual online and offline content for the dissemination of knowledge through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) title integrated application of Internet, low-transmission radio, closed user group telephone network, mobile telephony,. There is a need to analyze, on ,rituUtu technology information content based on the identified information need of the farmers, development department officers and other stakeholders.

34;or-ri"r.ts can also be designed multimedia with interactive learning principles, so that the farmers themselves can control the learning according to their needs. Developing modern village knowledge centers based on products suitable for communication and information technology. - the integrated a ;ri.rurr-, from Internet, low power station-based community radio, _olil"lru.r, mobile ;*rrfi; videoconferencing) for rapid dissemination of information to end users. The participatory approach could remove the alienation of research that focuses on problem solving and could be effective in meeting the development needs of agricultural sectors.
