Parallel Session
The parallel sessions were held from second day. At the mutation breeding session, participants followed up on Sub-Project on Insect Resistance in Orchid, and concluded about Sub-Project on Disease Resistance in Banana. Then they discussed future plan about Sub-Project on Composition and Quality in Rice. They also discussed possible cooperation with IAEA/RCA, and had a free discussion about possible application of mutation breeding for sustainable agriculture in Asia.
At the biofertilizer session, participants discussed on five topics including development of multi-functional biofertilizer and FNCA Manual for Quality Standard of Biofertilizer, and summarized activity plan in 2011. They also had a special presentation on sustainable agriculture and biofertilizer in the Philippines from Dr. Mercedes Umali Garcia, University of Philippine, Los Banos (UPLB).

Conclusion and Exchange of View
Ms. Adelaida C. Barrida, PNRI, Mutation Breeding PL of the Philippines reported a summary of the parallel session of Mutation Breeding Project, and Ms. Juliet A. Anarna, University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB), Biofertilizer PL of the Philippines reported summary of parallel session on Biofertilizer Project, respectively.
As a conclusion of the Workshop, Dr. Machi summarized possible contribution of nuclear technology for sustainable agriculture and possible synergy of Mutation Breeding Project and Biofertilizer Project. For possible synergy, mutant varieties of plants sensitive to biofertilizer and mutant development of microorganism for biofertilizer were discussed.

FNCA 2010 Meeting on Technology Transfer from Research to Commercial Application
FNCA 2010 Meeting on Technology Transfer from Research to Commercial Application was held on the last day of the workshop, attended by 50 participants from industries, research institutes and members of FNCA Workshop. They disucussed on current status and challenges the nuclear research institutions face in transferring research results from the laboratory to the market place.

Technical visit
Participants visited the National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH) of UPLB and observed Bio-N laboratory. They observed and discussed about process flow on Bio-N production, especially on carrier preparation. Then they visited the experimental field of the banana mutation breeding project of UPLB, and observed the crop stand, agronomic performance and disease reaction of the mutant lines. Finally, they visited Bio-N test field and got an explanation that he used Bio-N to reduce usage of chemical fertilizer and got a good result for yield.
