TAIPEI, TAIWAN ROC - FFTC, in collaboration with the Plant Pathology and Microbiology Department - College of Bio-Resources and Agriculture of the National Taiwan University (NTU), conducted a training workshop on Technology on Indexing and Production of Pathogen-free Citrus Seedlings on 5-12 August 2007 in NTU, Taipei, Taiwan ROC for participants from the Philippines and Malaysia. The training workshop aimed to provide the trainees with a comprehensive technical and working knowledge on citrus greening (HLB) and virus disease indexing and management toward the production of pathogen-free citrus seedlings. The said training was under the expertise and guidance of Dr. Hong-Ji Su, Professor Emeritus of NTU and FFTC Consultant.
The training workshop, attended by three participants from the Philippines and two from Malaysia, covered such topics as: citrus greening (HLB) and virus disease management; different techniques for virus disease indexing; production of pathogen-free seedlings by shoot-tip micrografting (STG); and pathogen-free citrus foundation and nursery system and antibiotic injection.
The activity was envisioned to facilitate citrus research and development in the two countries, especially the establishment of disease-indexing laboratories in the participants' respective institutions.
