A number of cassava breeders are in the search of an electronic device (preferably a phone) that offer a good compromise between cost and operability (screen resolution, battery autonomy, etc...) for digital data collection (with the Fieldbook app for example).
The Motog5 is often cited as a good one but its price is on getting higher.

Any experience with other phone or handheld devices to share?

hi all f

https://vvcworld.com/awards-show/
I, A.V.V. Koundinya, am working as a scientist in ICAR-Central Tuber Crops Research Institute, Trivandrum. I want to work on drought tolearnce in cassava (Manihot esculenta). I want you clarify some doubts and provide suggestions.

I downloaded EST (m RNA sequences) unique to the dehydration stress in cassava. I could not find any SSR regions in these sequences to use them as ESSR markers. Is it necessary to have sequence repeats to use them as markers? or can we use them directly without sequence repeats? Please help.‚Äč

Thanking you,
I am a young agrepreneur with interest in cassava production and processing; hence I wish to associate with people of like mind. If you any progressive news kindly share with me and if you like to know better about me kindly visit my website: www.cassavafarmers.blogspot.com. My e.mail is mosesfally@gmail.com.

Best regards,

hi all f

We've developed a platform for measuring plant health and photosynthesis called Photosynq (www.photosynq.org). We're looking for beta testers who are plant breeders, farmers, citizen scientists and plant scientists. The project is completely open source (software, hardware, and data). Cassavabase may be a great place to use the device to identify traits related to photosynthesis.

Do you think this is a good application? If there's anyone interested in taking part, we'll be doing a beta test in the next 4 months and we'd love to get folks involved. The link is http://photosynq.org/beta-test-application/ .

Thanks and hope to hear more.

Hi,
I intend to start a cassava farm and will need information on high yield variants and technical support.

I am also looking at getting markets abroad that make use of cassava or any of its bye products. A mentorship in this regard will certainly be most welcome.

If you have links or information pls reply my post or email akanbi2k@gmail.com .

I look forward to hearing from you .

I am a student at Makerere University doing plant breeding and seed systems and on my way to graduate by coming Jan, 2015. I did my research in cassava as major under topic of characterization genetic variance of cassava seedlings for yield performance in highland of Uganda.I would like to establish a new scheme on cassava back home, how would you advise me on that.?
