Cassava brown streak virus disease management in Mozambique: the NGOs' perspective

, : Cassava brown streak virus disease management in Mozambique: the NGOs' perspective. Cassava brown streak virus disease: past, present and future: Proceedings of an International Workshop, Mombasa, 27-30 October 2002: 70-74

This paper provides a synopsis of non-governmental organization (NGO) activities related to cassava brown streak virus disease (CBSD) in northern Mozambique and how the NGOs formed a loose consortium to tackle the various issues relating to this disease, aiming to identify and select cultivars that might be resistant to CBSD, multiply the most suitable cultivars and distribute in the affected areas to farmers.
