Tools and partnerships for sustainably increasing rice production

Speakers

Abstract

Time: 8:00am (PDT),  11:00pm (EDT), 5:00pm (CEST)
 
As the world’s population continues to grow, global rice production must significantly increase to meet demand. Like many areas southern Asia doesn’t have the luxury of expanding the rice field footprint in addition to significant challenges with climate change and disease. Breeding for higher yield, improving disease resistance and climate tolerance will enhance production and create a more sustainable pathway for rice growers to meet the regions demand.
 
This webinar describes how a partnership of academics and rice breeders in South Asia utilised NGS and PCR based technologies to identify key target trait markers for enhanced abiotic and biotic responses. The Innovate UK project demonstrated proof of concept that new and older generation DNA markers work when applied across a wide range of rice crosses from Nepal, Pakistan, and India. This resulted in the genotyping of at least 26 rice collections and 4867 improved KASP markers which are supported in an online database specifically for agricultural scientists.
 
Watch the webinar to see how PCR and NGS can provide agricultural scientists with accurate, efficient, and cost advantageous solutions for selection in advanced breeding scenarios.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Understand agricultural practices to bolster production and enable food security.
  • Gain an understanding of how data using genomic tools can impact your breeding programme.
  • Learn how PCR and NGS can be complimentary technologies.
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
