FY 2015 AFRI Plant Breeding Projects
The FY2015 AFRI plant breeding projects focus on public breeding to improve crop productivity, efficiency, quality, performance, and/or adaptation, and includes:
- Pre-breeding and germplasm enhancement, cultivar development, selection theory, applied quantitative genetics, and participatory breeding, or
- Development and application of tools to predict phenotype from genotype to accelerate breeding of finished varieties, and
- Development of content suitable for delivery through the existing eXtension Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice to amplify outreach and education efforts to plant breeders, seed industry professionals, and practitioners.
