ICARDA, Syria, will provide the support and oversight for projects conducted within Pakistan by Pakistani researchers, including, but not limited to screening for Cotton Leaf Curl Virus (CLCuV), delivering new sources of resistance (germplasm), in usable backgrounds, along with improved technology for transferring the resistance genes into adapted varieties, and establishing sentinel plots to monitor CLCuV spread in Pakistan. ICARDA will facilitate programs initiated to address the need for improved crop management practices for small farmers, and coordinate workshops and training opportunities for Pakistani researchers.
