() Finger millet blast management in East Africa Creating opportunities for improving production and utilization of finger millet. International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics, Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh, India. ISBN Finger millet blast disease management: a key entry point for fighting malnutrition and poverty in East Africa but has also fostered partnerships in an evolving finger millet innovation system in East Africa. A key entry point has been created to address other constraints to finger millet production and utilization, such as ineffective weed. This paper reports recent investment by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) in several projects on blast disease that has not only led to successful promotion of sound blast management strategies to farmers, but has also fostered partnerships in an evolving finger millet innovation system in East Africa.

Finger millet blast in East Africa: Pathogen diversity and disease management strategies. Final Technical Report. Published 1 January Finger millet blast in East Africa. New knowledge on genetic and pathogenic diversity and mating compatibilities of East African finger millet blast populations generated, information on blast incidence and constraints faced in disease management gathered and tools and local capability for long- term pathogen monitoring developed. ii). Finger millet blast populations in East Africa revealed a continuous genetic variation pattern and lack of clonal lineages, with a wide range of haplotypes. M. oryzae populations lacked the.
The following points highlight the seven major diseases of finger millet with its management. The diseases are: 1. Blast 2. Seedling Blight 3. Wilt or Foot Rot 4. Cercospora Leaf Spot 5. Downy Mildew or Green Ear Disease 6. Smut 7. Damping-Off. Finger Millet: Disease # 1. Blast: Of the several fungal diseases that affect finger millet crop. Abstract Finger millet (Eleusine coracana subsp. coracana) is the most important millet in East Africa (EA) and perhaps the oldest domesticated cereal grain in Africa. One of the major factors limi. Kenyan and Ugandan farmers are aware of blast symptoms. Project R has identified various germplasm accessions and farmer varieties with low blast Finger (Millet) Foods R Finger millet blast in East Africa: pathogen diver-sity and disease management strategies Contact: S. (Prasad) Sreenivasaprasad, Warwick-HRI, UK. Kenya, information on finger millet blast pathogen diversity and characteristics in East Africa has remained insufficient (Takan et al., ). Currently in Kenya, most of the studies have not provided a quantitative measurement of finger millet blast occurrence, distribution and severity, although blast disease has been.
