Fixation - Restitution Breeding
This project proposes a new breeding system, called Fixation-Restitution Breeding, that allows for a predictable accumulation and subsequent fixation of biotic and abiotic resistances with yield and quality traits. Fixation and pyramiding of biotic and abiotic stress resistance, in combination with yield, nutritional value and quality, will facilitate SME breeding companies to develop potato varieties with a sustainability profile, impossible to achieve using current methods.
DIFFUGAT - Diploid Inbreds For Fixation, and Unreduced GAmetes for Tetraploidy
A three year project (2019-2022) from the funding program SusCrop, which is an ERA-Net Cofund Action under H2020, which aims to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in the field of Sustainable Crop Production through enhanced cooperation and coordination of different national and regional research programmes.
INVITE - INnovations in plant VarIety Testing in Europe
The overall objective of INVITE, a 5-year European Union funded project (2019-2024), is to foster the introduction of new varieties better adapted to varying biotic and abiotic conditions and to more sustainable crop management practices.
In the context where agriculture is increasingly being urged to reduce its dependency on external inputs, lower its environmental footprint and cope with more variable climatic conditions, INVITE aims to help the valorisation and the promotion of varieties that are more adapted to sustainable management practices, and more resilient to climate change.
