Pan-African Soybean Variety Trials Disease and Pest Evaluation Report - Kenya
The Pan-African Soybean Variety Trials (PAVTs) were established in Kenya to evaluate the incidence and severity of soybean diseases and pests in the 2019 and 2020 growing season. The PAVTs were established at Kibwezi in eastern, Kiambu in central, Bungoma in western by the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture (SFSA), and at Njoro in the western rim of the rift valley by the Kenya Agriculture and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO). Evaluation for disease severity and incidence of insect pests damage was conducted between October to December 2019. Diseased samples were also collected for further analysis.
