BOND Launch + Webinar: IITA Breeding Operations / Bayer Seed Processing

Breeding operations teams are vital for ensuring programs deliver the varieties needed by smallholder farmers. There are many good practices being adopted; it's time to share and collaborate. Watch BOND's launch -- the Breeding Operations Network for Development (BOND), and learn:

  • BOND vision as a “CoP with teeth,” supporting and connecting breeding operations specialists

  • Plans for webinars, capacity development, resources and connections with colleagues

Following the launch will be the webinar, “Breeding operations at IITA & Seed production/processing at Bayer” from the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the Bayer Crop Science teams, with overviews of their management principles, practices and opportunities. Followed by Q&A.
