A participant in a weeklong seed health workshop uses a stereo microscope to examine disease symptoms on the stem of a maize seedling in CIMMYT’s Seed Health Laboratory (SHL). The workshop was held during 29 November-03 December 2010 and based at CIMMYT’s headquarters at El Batán, Mexico, with participants spending most of their time in the SHL.

It was attended by 11 technicians from ten Mexican states, from State Committees of Plant Health and from the National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture, and Livestock Research (INIFAP). They explored various detection methods for seed borne fungi, bacteria, and viruses affecting maize and wheat, with the aim of promoting protocol consistency among Mexican seed technicians.

The workshop was the first of its kind, and due to resounding positive feedback, it is hoped that it will be continued annually.
