    26 November, Sarpang: Sarpang Dzongkhag has seven non-wood forestry product management and marketing groups. The Dzongkhag Forestry Sector conducted monitoring, review and revision of management plans for the group during the month of October and November 2015. In addition, one of the objectives was to create awareness on Satuwa (Paris polyphylla) as per the directives from the department. The awareness training was conducted in Jigmecholing and Chudzom Gewogs with reference to guidelines for resource assessment and management of Satuwa.

  • SFED trains foresters on Forest monitoring through GIS and Remote Sensing

    SFED trg16-20 Nov. 2015, Thimphu: Some 15 foresters from Dzongkhag Forestry Sectors and Territorial Divisions are currently getting trained on using Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) to monitor the forests at Hotel RochogPel in Thimphu.

    With use of GIS and RS, foresters will be able to monitor forest dynamics real times in terms of forest cover to woody biomass. The technology can also enable foresters to monitor forest boundary, forest strata, canopy density, forest fires, forest degradations, illegal activities, encroachment, illegal mining and several other aspects.

  • Molecular Mapping and Genetic Characterization of Rust Resistance in Wheat

    Friday seminar on 27th November 2015:
    Venue: RDC Yusipang.


    The first aspect of this investigation covers QTL analysis of triple rust resistance segregating among W195/BT-Schomburgk Selection (BTSS) recombinant inbred line (RIL) population. Three QTL each for stripe rust (QYr.sun-3BS; QYr.sun-4DL; QYr.sun-7AS), leaf rust (QLr.sun-2BS; QLr.sun-3BS; QLr.sun-4DL) and stem rust (QSr.sun-2BL; QSr.sun-4DL; QSr.sun-6AS) resistance were identified. QYr.sun-3BS, QYr.sun-4DL, QLr.sun-4DL and QSr.sun-4DL were contributed by W195, whereas other QTL were contributed by the alternate parent BTSS.

    QTL analysis was followed by detailed characterization of the resistance loci. QYr.sun-3BS explained 34-59% phenotypic variation and was chosen for characterisation at different growth stages and temperature regimes. It expressed well at the 4th leaf stage at a higher than normal temperature (21±2 ºC) for stripe rust growth. This locus was formally named Yr58. The co-located QTL for stripe rust, leaf rust and stem rust resistance in chromosome 4DL was demonstrated to correspond to the pleiotropic adult plant resistance (APR) locus Yr46/Lr67/Sr55 through linked marker genotyping. Yr58 produced infection type 23C when present singly and in the presence of Yr46 it produced infection type; 1N.These results demonstrated the interaction of APR gene Yr46in improving expression of the middle stage resistance gene Yr58. QLr.sun-2BS and QSr.sun-6AS were confirmed to be Lr23 and Sr8a, respectively,through seedling tests using relevant pathotypes. QYr.sun-7AS, QLr.sun-3BS, QSr.sun-2BL appear to be unique APR loci and need to be characterised in detail.
