New Publication Presents Outcomes of Eighth Asian Regional Maize Workshop

A copy of the Proceedings of the Eighth Asian Maize Workshop is now available in PDF form. The workshop, which took place during 5 – 8 August 2002 in Bangkok, Thailand, was titled “New Technologies and Technology Delivery Systems for the New Millennium.” Jointly organized by CIMMYT, Kasetsart University, and Thailand’s Department of Agriculture, the event drew more than 150 participants from Asia and invited speakers from Latin America and Africa. The 61 papers included in the proceedings cover molecular tools for maize improvement, genetics and breeding, crop management, biotic and abiotic stresses affecting maize, technology adoption and dissemination, and country reports. Published by CIMMYT, it was edited by G. Grinivasan, P.H. Zaidi, B.M. Prasanna, F. Gonzalez, and K. Lesnick. In addition to the PDF, seven hundred paper copies are available.

Slated for September 2005, the Ninth Asian Regional Maize Workshop will convene in Beijing, China. For further information, please contact Dr. Zhang Shihuang, CAAS, Beijing, China. Executive Secretary, Organizing Committee, 9th ARMW. Email: cshzhang@public.bta.net.cn
