Session 1 Report on 2013 and Plan for Project on Mutation Breeding of Rice for Sustainable Agriculture
Dr. Sueo Machi, FNCA Coordinator of Japan gave a presentation for progress of 11 FNCA activities in 2012 - 2013 and achievement of 14th Ministerial Level Meeting held in Tokyo, December 2013.
Then reports and plans for new project on Mutation Breeding of Rice for Sustainable Agriculture were presented by eight member countries. The summaries of the reports are attached as Annex 4.

Session 2 Follow-up for Sub-project on Sorghum and Soybean, Orchid, Banana
Follow-up reports on the Sub-projects in Banana, Orchid, Sorghum and Soybean were presented by Dr. Human (Indonesia), Dr. Sobri Bin Hussein (Malaysia) and Ms. Adelaida Barrida (the Philippines) respectively. They all presented substantial achievements made in respective crops, most significantly in soybean and sorghum, a number of mutant varieties have been officially released and widely grown by farmers. Orchid mutant tolerant to mite has been adopted by industry, while banana tolerant to BBTV is still on the process of testing with the aim to be released as a new variety.
Collaboration between BATAN and the Ministry of Agriculture in Indonesia could be a good example for the extension of mutant varieties to the farmer society. Also being the No. 5 crop in the world, sorghum is particularly important in African countries as well as in Asia, hence it would be interesting to explore their use as healthy food stuff. Sorghum mutant varieties have just been released and their economic value is being studied in Indonesia. Details of evaluation will be provided by Dr. Human later. The most difficult part in dissemination of mutant sorghum varieties is limited seed production, knowledge of sorghum planting and awareness of by end users. The summaries of each presentation are attached as Annex 4.

Session 3 Cooperation with RCA/IAEA
Dr. Liu Luxiang, LCC of IAEA/RCA Project RAS5056 presented progress of RCA project for mutation breeding in which mutant varieties with improved traits such as tolerance to abiotic stresses (e.g. drought, soil salinity) in the face of climate change. For this purpose, cooperation with FNCA Mutation Breeding Project has been improved by information exchange and common usage of ion beams.

Session 4 Future Plan for Project on Mutation Breeding of Rice for Sustainable Agriculture
The future plans of each country were discussed, especially focusing on several items such as selection methods, ion-beam application, and mostly on major target of breeding for high yielding under stress conditions and low input sustainable agriculture. In addition, Dr. Nakai addressed challenges of growing rice in Mongolia and proposed the application of mutation breeding to overcome these challenges.
