The IAEA, in cooperation with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), is using radiation to develop improved cassava varieties that can resist adverse climate conditions and diseases such as the Mosaic Virus and the Brown Streak Disease in the Central African Republic (CAR). In 2016, scientists at the IAEA laboratories in Austria irradiated 1700 cuttings, which are now planted in CAR for testing.

How a nuclear technique helped save the orange industry in Western Cape, South Africa Pupae: The moths pupate in honeycombs like this one for seven days. Workers review and estimate the number of moths in each sheet in order to accurately forecast production volume every day.
Better Crops to Feed Millions Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen, in cooperation with the IAEA, are using nuclear techniques to develop crop varieties that will produce more grain even under tough conditions. Before the IAEA project began in 2005 more than half of the countries involved had no experience with this kind of nuclear science. Bringing together people from countries with different levels of experience to train each other, exchange knowledge,...
Empowering women and growing food — Sudan Women in Khashm Algebra Refugee Village near Kassala, Sudan were once not allowed to work, grow food, or leave their homes, but are now managing their own vegetable gardens to grow food for their families and villages. Through partnerships on the ground, scientists at the Agriculture Research Cooperation (ARC) in Sudan trained by the Joint FAO/IAEA Division have helped to set up drip irrigation watering systems optimized with...
For the past 35 years, mutation induction has played a significant role in enhancing crop production and the competitiveness of farm produce in Latin America and the Caribbean. One of the most successful examples in the region is the hardy barley variety, developed by the Cereals Improvement Programme of the Universidad Agraria, La Molina, in Lima, with IAEA support. Professor Luz Gomez Pando is in charge of the programme.

The Mobile Hot Cell in Manila - April 2013 A nuclear security expert and a radioactive waste specialist from the IAEA were sent to Manila to observe the mission. The proper storage of disused sources is important from both a nuclear safety and security perspective. Such sources are vulnerable to loss, abandonment, theft or misuse and could be used by criminals in a so-called ƒ??dirty bombƒ??. They are also classified as ƒ??category 1ƒ??, meaning they...
