Research Task Force

Purpose of Research Task Force

Research foundation for practice-oriented research is enhanced in 9 departments of YAU. The main objectives are:

  • To select the biotic and abiotic stress tolerant rice varieties under climate change in particular area
  • To provide information on crop pests, diseases and soil fertility Status in Myanmar and improvement of crop management practices
  • To enhance postharvest and supply chain management of durable and perishable crops in Myanmar

Outputs

  • Management system to promote research is improved in YAU.
  • The research ability of academic staff is enhanced in YAU.
