Data Analysis Workshop of the International Neem Network
Arid Forest Research Institute, Jodhpur, India, 21 25 March 2001

Agenda

THE NETWORK ORGANIZATION AND PRINCIPLES

The following cooperation principles for the network were discussed and approved at the Second International Consultation on Neem in Jodhpur, India, 1994:

1. Free availability to all network collaborators of seed for research purposes on an exchange basis.

2. Adoption of standardized trial designs and standardized evaluation procedures.

3. Free availability to all network collaborators of trial and research results.

4. Provenance seed collection/handling/despatch for trials included in the programme will be carried out by cooperating countries and support will be provided or sought by Network members.

5. Complementary studies (phenology, genetic diversity/reproductive biology, seed physiology) will be undertaken through specific research projects discussed and approved by the network collaborators. Each project has a coordinator and will be presented for funding to interested agencies, as a research module supporting the neem improvement network programme.

6. Each network collaborator can be involved in the various activities according to interest and capability.

7. Each participating country has a national focal institution (NFI) which coordinates the network activities at the national level.

8. The Network is operating under the coordination of a Panel formed by representatives of NFIs of 3 participating countries, plus CIRAD-Forêt (France), DANIDA Forest Seed Centre (DFSC, Denmark), the UNDP/FAO Regional Tree Improvement Project (FORTIP), IPGRI and FAO. Overall coordination is entrusted to FAO.

The initial group of network collaborators (representing 24 countries) will be progressively open to other collaborators who adhere to the above principles.

Guidelines /booklets

Colour of booklet

Objectives and main content of the guidelines/ booklets

Guidelines for Identification, Delineation and Description of Neem Seed Sources (1994). Published in "Newsletter of International Neem Network" Vol. I. No. 2. June 1994.

White

The objective of these technical guidelines is set common procedure in order to be able to compare the characteristics of the seed sources and to describe the seed sources in such a way that repeated collection can be undertaken. Guidelines are provided for sampling strategy, characteristics of tree stands suitable for inclusion, delineation of seed sources and description of identified seed sources.

Procedures for seed collection and exchange (1995)

Yellow

The objective of these technical guidelines is to obtain optimal quality (both genetically and physiologically) of seed to be used in the international provenance trials. Guidelines are provided for seed collection, seed processing, seedlot documentation, packing and despatch and seed germination testing.

Revised Procedures and Design in Trial Establishment

1. Nursery Phase (1995)

Green

The objective of these technical guidelines is to ensure that the identity of the plants is kept recorded throughout the nursery phase; and to assist in improving survival rates during the nursery phase. Guidelines are provided for seed receipt, seed testing, period for nursery operations, type of planting stock, preparing nursery beds, sowing and tending, design and lay-out of nursery beds, labelling and plant preparation before transplanting in the field.

Revised Procedures and Design in Trial Establishment

2. Field Trials (1996)

Red

The objective of these technical guidelines is to provide a basis for choice of trial design. Recommendations are given on how to design statistically sound trials. It was considered unrealistic and not desirable to follow a standard design. The design needs to be adjusted to local conditions and to the seedlings available for each trial. The Network offered technical assistance to collaborators which might have required it in the design phase.

Assessment of International Neem Provenance Trials.

1. Core Characters, year 1-5 (1997)

Grey

The objective of these technical guidelines is to facilitate the assessment of the trials within the first five years. The overall objective of assessing the trials is to provide guidelines on the choice of seed sources of neem for given sites and end uses. The guidelines include a minimum set of characters (core characters) to be assessed as well as a list of optional characters.

Seed Source Descriptions (1998)

Blue

The objective of this review is to compile all relevant information into a unique booklet to be made available to all collaborators. The booklet contains detailed seed source descriptions (including maps) of the 25 seed sources included in the international provenance trials.

Trial Site Descriptions (2000)

Orange

The objective of this descriptive manual is to compile all relevant information available on trials and trial sites. A first draft of this booklet has been sent to all Network collaborators for comments.
