Plant breeding is the basis for the creation of new plant varieties that are more resilient, with high production and quality, which satisfies the requests of the consumers. In the area of genomic selection and high throughput technology, knowledge and expertise on crop physiology, resilience and phenotyping are essential to reliably predict the potential of a new plant genotype.
WUR Greenhouse Horticulture, can contribute to the breeding process by applying our state-of-the-art greenhouses facilities, physiological knowledge, automated measuring systems, data analysis by means of crop growth modelling, while considering commercial best practices. In this seminar, we would like to inform you about our latest developments in these field and discuss with you how this could contribute to plant breeding.
