IAEA CONNECT - 28 Oct 2014 The IAEA launched its online platform, CONNECT, in conjunction with an interregional training workshop from 28 to 31 October 2014. CONNECT is an easy-to-use online environment that brings together existing and planned professional and expert networks from IAEA Member States, with the aim of facilitating collaboration and sharing of information and experience from across the nuclear field. The CONNECT platform is an example of the successful cooperation between the...

New types of rice are grown in fields near the Institute of Agricultural Genetics, in Hanoi, Vietnam, where scientists breed crops for desirable traits. The Institute is part of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and receives support for its work through IAEA research and technical cooperation projects.

In the shade of a bamboo tree, Ms. Pham Thi Quang, a mother of two in her early forties, stands in her home courtyard in Thanh Gia, a small rice farming village in Bac Ninh Province near Hanoi, Vietnam. She is among hundreds of women in the village whose work determines the rice crop's fate -- each growing season, it is mainly women who plant, cultivate, and harvest the fields.

Women young and old work the rice fields in Vietnam and most developing countries. Near Hanoi, new varieties of rice are planted and cultivated at agricultural stations like this one in Van Giang. The new varieties in north Vietnam are developed by scientists at the country's Agricultural Genetics Institute.

The Soil Science Unit at IAEA's Seibersdorf Laboratory. Through a neutron moisture probe it is possible to measure soil-water balance.

Genetic mutation is used to make plants more resistant and to increase their yield. Short plants can be made to occupy less space so they can have a "dense canopy". This prevents them from being beaten down by weather and increase yield (number of plants) per unit area.

Better Crops to Feed Millions A test field of mutated barley at the Field Crops Research Directorate at Jordan’s National Center for Agricultural Research and Extension (NCARE).

Better Crops to Feed Millions Wheat and barley are among the most important crops contributing to food security and sufficiency in Jordan and the Middle East. But each year Jordan produces less than 3% of the amount of wheat and barley needed to feed its population of 6.5 million. That’s mainly because wheat and barley crops are threatened by disease, saline soil and persistent drought.

05410088.jpg

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,...

Better Crops to Feed Millions Quite a lot of Jordan's agricultural land has been diverted to commercial and residential construction over the last 20 years. The remaining farm land receives only sporadic rainfall. Therefore Jordan produces less than three percent of the wheat and barley needed to feed its six and a half million residents every year.

How a nuclear technique helped save the orange industry in Western Cape, South Africa Maize bags. 2500 kilograms of maize are used for moth feed every day.

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.

How a nuclear technique helped save the orange industry in Western Cape, South Africa Irradiation: The moths, placed in boxes, are sterilized using gamma rays emitted by a cobalt-60 source. To ensure complete irradiation, the table rotates around the source, and the boxes also rotate. Irradiation currently lasts 37 minutes. Its duration is adjusted monthly in line with the gradually weakening strength of the radioactive source.
