This project builds on the strength of partners across the cassava value chain: both pre-harvest (disease and pest resistance, breeding) and post-harvest (processing and markets). LimitCBSD explores cassava brown steak disease (CBSD) diagnostics, epidemiology, tissue culture and use of advanced molecular tools to identify sources of resistance to the disease.
