A training session on the use of Android mobile device to capture field data and the printing of Bar-code via Bluetooth to label a laboratory specimen on the field and on the screen house.
The IITA Genetic Resources Center (GRC) holds international collections of tropical clonal crops such as cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz), yam (Dioscorea species), Banana and plantains (Musa species). These crops hardly produce seeds (very few or no seed production) which are recalcitrant and/or intermediate heterogeneous seed. That’s why they are propagated clonally, through stem cuttings, tubers […]
Exploration is been carried out in GRC based on the availability of seed in the conservation and number of propagated plant available for distribution. Also exploration can be done when there is loss of accession. Important documentation needed when going for exploration are the country of origin, location, longitude and latitude (Geo-reference data) cultivar name, […]
