What are the best practices for modern breeding?

Through “sharing excellence” across programs and geographies, crop breeders are ready to deliver higher rates of genetic gain and varietal turnover. This was the theme of November 10-12’s Excellence in Breeding (EiB) Virtual Meeting 2020, where nearly 250 breeders and leaders came together to share principles, successes and opportunities. 

The event kicked off with EiB Director Michael Quinn and Deputy Director Jan Debaene reiterating that the breeding program modernization efforts in CGIAR require us to implement change – which, they noted, is hard!

“To be successful, a change initiative needs clear lines of accountability, sponsorship – particularly from senior leadership, technical support, financial support, standards and a unified platform,” Debaene told attendees to open the Western time zone sessions. “We can do this together.”

Sessions can be viewed on the event’s Youtube playlist
