CGIAR Excellence in Breeding, as part of Crops to End Hunger (CtEH)’s support for breeding modernization, acquired and distributed research equipment to partners. The goal is to deliver faster and better data and to increase capacity - leading to higher rates of genetic gain. Two pieces of this equipment target the improvement on data acquisition, particularly data related to yield for grains: a weighing system (HarvestMaster) and a seed moisture meter (DICKEY-john). The equipment will support breeding programs to have better yield data.
As CGIAR Excellence in Breeding’s BOND (Breeding Operations Network for Development) event, this training webinar features representatives from manufacturers presenting key features of their products. After attending this webinar, participants will be able to use the equipment in their operations, find training and support materials in the EIB toolbox, and understand how to find technical support.
The training is prioritized for station staff that received the equipment.
