FY 2014 AFRI Plant Breeding Projects
The FY 2014 AFRI plant breeding projects focus on public breeding efforts to improve crop yield, efficiency, quality and/or adaptation to diverse agricultural systems and includes:
- Pre-breeding and germplasm enhancement, cultivar development, selection theory, applied quantitative genetics, and participatory breeding;
- Development of tools to predict phenotype from genotype to accelerate breeding of finished varieties; or
- Conference grants to identify regional needs for plant breeding research, education, or extension.
