Three outstanding participants from the earlier workshop on Training Workshop on Diagnostics of Weevils of Quarantine Importance will be endorsed for the 2nd Phase which is a 2-month attachment training program organised by the ASEAN Plant Health Cooperation Network (APHCN) of ASEANET. They will be trained to improve their diagnostic capability and enhance diagnostic resources in ASEAN.
The main objective of the training is to develop and strengthen capacity of participants of ASEAN Member States (AMS) in taxonomy in order to be able to accurately diagnose and identify pests and manage quarantine risks associated with agricultural commodities, especially leaf miners and their parasitoids
Proposed “study visit” to Plant Quarantine & Plant Protection System in Japan to allow ASEAN plant health and quarantine personnel to better understand and appreciate the role played by an efficient plant quarantine system in preventing pest incursions.
In this workshop, we aim to teach the participants how to identify weevils with economic importance, and the importance of taxonomy and ecology in managing or controlling pests such as weevils. Also, participants will be able to learn techniques in identification based on morphology and DNA sequences.
Dr. Soetikno S. Sastroutomo, Technical Secretary of ASEANET-APHCN participated in the Eighteenth Meeting of the Experts Working Group on Harmonisation of Phytosanitary Measures in ASEAN (18th EWG-PS) held on 18-19 July 2016 in Vientiane, Lao PDR
The attachment program was held at the Department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, Nara Women's University, Nara, Japan from August 01 – September 30, 2016 with the objective to improve the knowledge and skills of the two participants for the study of leafminers and to encourage them to contribute towards development of this field in the ASEAN region
