Overview

The Center began its work in Southeast Asia with the Thailand Outreach Program in 1982.

The Center’s regional office, established in 1992 as the Asian Regional Center and renamed in 2009 as the World Vegetable Center East and Southeast Asia, is located on the campus of Kasetsart University in Bangkok. Staff collaborate with university administration and researchers with the support of the Royal Thai Government. The office is the focal point for regional research and training and for the Center’s work with the People’s Republic of China.

The regional office addresses vegetable research and development in the region to improve nutrition and reduce poverty through hands-on training. The Center’s annual International Vegetable Training Course has been held for more than three decades; thousands of scientists across Asia have participated, enhancing their technical, scientific and managerial skills in vegetable production and marketing to contribute to the sustainable development of their countries.

The Center’s Research and Training Station is located on Kasetsart University’s Kamphaeng Saen Campus in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.

EAST AND SOUTHEAST ASIA UPDATE

A day for cucurbits in Myanmar

After two years of testing cucurbit lines in Myanmar, the Department of Agriculture Research organized a Cucurbit Open Field Day on 7 September 2017 to showcase WorldVeg improved bitter gourd and pumpkin lines.

A first for Timor-Leste and WorldVeg

Bred by the World Vegetable Center, ‘Lakateu-AV’ and ‘Kiukae-AV’ are the first mungbean varieties released in Timor-Leste—and also the first WorldVeg vegetable varieties in the country.

Tomato grafting comes to Cambodia

Conducted under the SNV-led CHAIN project funded by the Swiss Development Corporation (SDC), the workshop brought together 45 participants (10 women & 35 men) to learn how to graft tomato and when to apply the method.

Seeing is believing in WorldVeg bitter gourd fields

The World Vegetable Center (WorldVeg) cucurbit team proudly displayed 400 bitter gourd breeding lines plus another 400 bitter gourd F1 hybrids and early stage products of recurrent selection during Bitter Gourd Open Field Days from 14-30 August 2017 at the World Vegetable Center East and Southeast Asia Research and Training Station, located on the campus of Kasetsart University in Kamphaeng Saen, Thailand.
