  • Burundi area: 27 834 km2

  • Population in 2008: 8 060 000

  • More than 90%: agricultural people

  • Cereals as maize: main crop in Burundi

  • Principal known deseases of maize in Burundi: MSV, Common Rust, Turci, GLS,

  • MSV is a dangerous desease because it is diffucult to control and the resistant varieties degenerate very quickly

  • About MLND:

    - Not sure if there is MLN in Burundi

    - Overlook the symptoms of MLN

  • High probality to have it in Burundi

  • Need to confirm that MLN exits or no by analysis

  • Opportunities: phyto laboratory, staff


Analysis on the existence of mln two cas are possible
Analysis on the existence of MLN: Two cas are possible

  • Sample collected and analysed: 2 possibilities of results:

  • MLND do not exist in Burundi: strategies to convert its entry in the country

  • MLND exist in Burundi: strategies to fight against its propagation or to manage it


1 strategies to convert the entry of mln in burundi
1. Strategies to convert the entry of MLN in Burundi

  • Educate farmers about the disease: symptoms, its scale, mode of propagation, its means of control, etc.

  • Early alert systems: if a farmer suspected of similar symptoms, he must inform the agricultural services

  • Promote and popularize the rotation system that prevents its spread: avoid previous crops based cereals, would prevent virus survival on intermediate hosts


1 strategies to convert the entry of mln in burundi1
1. Strategies to convert the entry of MLN in Burundi

  • Popularize the best system and planting date: not spread over the seedlings in the same site, even if irrigation is possible or even if it rains all year

  • Avoid imported germplasm or seed from countries where the disease exists

  • Conduct research on the selection or development of MLN resistant varieties


2 no occurrence strategies to fight against its propagation
2. No occurrence: strategies to fightagainstits propagation

  • Train the farmers about the disease: symptoms, its scale, mode of propagation, strategies for control, etc.

  • Promote and popularize the rotation system that prevents its spread: avoid previous crops based on cereals would prevent virus survival on intermediate hosts


2 no occurrence strategies to fight against its propagation1
2. No occurrence: strategies to fightagainstits propagation

  • Conduct research on the selection or development of resistance varieties

  • Collaborate with international research institutes working on maize

  • Disseminate MLND resistant varieties
