Participatory approaches: Client-oriented Breeding Of Rice For The Terai and Low Hills Of Nepal
PDF File Size: 33 KB | Download   
The high potential rice production systems have diverse biophysical and socio-economic environments, but there is a lack of rice varieties matching this diversity. A number of advanced breeding lines have recently been developed to match these production systems. Therefore, suitable varieties for diverse rice-producing environments were developed in high potential production systems through participatory plant breeding. This technology from DFID describes how to implement this method. Generally, the National Rice Research Programme (NRRP) develops and recommends varieties mainly for use in the larger (districts/regions), such as Eastern Terai, Central Terai, Western Terai, Mid Hills and High Hills, although there are considerable differences within all these environments. Variety release by the formal sector is slow, and farmers receive finished products late in the process.
