    WHEAT NEMATODES OF SMALL GRAIN CEREALS: CURRENT STATUS AND RESEARCH 2015

    No results found.

    The Fifth International Cereal Nematodes Initiative Workshop will be held in Ankara, Turkey during 13-15 September 2015, is an update to the 1st International Cereal Cyst Nematodes Initiative Workshop held in 2009 in Antalya, Turkey. The 5th International Cereal Nematodes Initiative Workshop involved more than 70 scientists from wheat and barley producing regions in 20 countries throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, North Africa and North America. Cereal nematodes are microscopic parasites that in vade roots of wheat, barley, oats and other small grain cereals. The most important of these plant-parasitic nematodes occur in the genera Heterodera (cyst nematodes) and Pratylenchus (root-lesion nematodes). Forty three papers in this volume cover: the history and status of cereal nematodes globally and regionally; research on morphological, genetic and ecological diversity; development and deployment of host resistance including development and applications of molecular technologies; and inves tigations into other strategies for reducing the magnitude of economic damage caused by cereal nematodes. Special emphasis is given to opportunities to develop and deploy integrations of sustainable management practices. The papers provide valuable insights into the impacts of cereal nematodes and endeavors to provide sustainable management options for farmers. The impact of cereal nematodes in reducing crop yields and the efficiency of cropping systems ranges from severe in resource-limited cro pping systems to minor in cropping systems where it is possible to integrate a broader range of rotation crops and resource-intensive inputs. Unacceptable levels of economic loss continue to occur in many countries. International collaboration such as occurred in this workshop is required to ensure that appropriate genetic resources and technologies are developed, communicated and deployed.

    The Regional Workshop on Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture in Central Asia: Status and Development Prospects (Beymelek, Demre, Antalya, Turkey, 11–14 December 2007) was jointly organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of Turkey (MARA), the Turkish International Cooperation Agency (TICA) and FAO, and held at the Mediterranean Fisheries Research, Production and Training Institute (AKSAM). In cooperation with the country participants, the Workshop aimed to elaborate the basis for a joint MARA, FAO and TICA strategic programme for fisheries and aquaculture development in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The Regional Workshop was attended by 35 participants from the five Central Asian countries, MARA and TICA representatives, university professors from various universities in Turkey, private-sector representatives, as well as MARA and FAO resource persons. Outcomes of the meeting were, inter alia, the exchange among representatives of the Central Asian countries of experiences on fisheries and aquaculture development constraints and opportunities, and increased awareness on the common goals to increase sustainable development of the sector and on the need for regional collaboration in fisheries and aquaculture.

    The Regional Workshop on Promoting and Strengthening Fisheries and Aquaculture Organizations in Central Asia (Izmir, Turkey, 1–4 November 2010) was organized within the framework of the Central Asia Regional Programme for Fisheries and Aquaculture Development (FishDev-Central Asia; GCP/ RER/031/TUR), under the FAO-Turkey Partnership Programme (FTPP). It was co-organized with a national-level project, namely Support to Fishery and Aquaculture Management in the Kyrgyz Republic (GCP/KYR/003/FIN), f inanced by the Government of Finland. The workshop was hosted by the Aegean Exporters’ Associations and was attended by 20 experts from five countries (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic [Kyrgyzstan], Tajikistan and Turkey), representing the fishers and fish farmers associations, fisheries authorities and some research institutes of these countries, as well as international experts and resource persons from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The objective s of the workshop were fourfold: (1) to understand the concepts, principles and processes of establishment and enhancement of associations and forming umbrella organizations (i.e. unions, federations); (2) to identify the gaps, capacity needs and opportunities for improvement or establishment and development of fishers organizations (FOs); (3) to share lessons learned, experiences and good practices from other countries; and (4) to prepare action plans on the promotion and strengthening of FOs i n the participating countries. This report is the record of the workshop proceedings, which includes summaries of the country presentations, case studies and outputs of working groups presented at the workshop. The report was prepared jointly by the FAO Subregional Office for Central Asia (FAOSEC), in close collaboration with the Fishing Operations and Technology Service (FIRO), FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, Rome, Italy.
