PLANT VARIETY DESIGN FOR EMERGING MARKETS IN AFRICA
The international Demand-Led Breeding (DLB) working group with UKZN’s African Centre for Crop Improvement (ACCI) hosted a series of webinars for the research and development community in Southern Africa. The aim is to create dialogues to strengthen plant breeding and to make the case for investing in demand-led plant breeding in Southern Africa.
Eminent academics and R&D managers from Southern Africa and internationally will be providing keynote addresses. Event participants include public and private sector plant breeders, educators, R&D managers, demand-led breeding alumni, and policy makers.
