Wheat Blast

Chris Knight, of the BGRI multi-media team, has created a series of videos describing the threat of wheat blast in Asia and current efforts to combat it, using material from the two-week wheat blast training course held in February 2017 and hosted by the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) Wheat Research Center. Experts from BARI, Cornell University, the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), Kansas State University (KSU), and the Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU) trained participants in surveying and monitoring wheat blast.
