Collection of rice landraces in Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi

Grant No
Project Description
This project supported the collection of rice landraces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Burundi. The main concern in these countries is that the diffusion and adoption of improved varieties could lead to a decline of diversity conserved by farmers, as well as to the abandon of cultural practices. Very few landraces are conserved ex situ, so the assembly of current on-farm rice diversity for conservation and rice improvement was urgent.
