Wheat phenotyping workshop

The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) extends a cordial invitation to participate in the training workshop “Wheat phenotyping for the identification of germplasm with high yield potential and tolerance to drought and heat”. This will be held in CIMMYT HQ, Texcoco, State of Mexico, on September 28th, 2018 (from 9:00 – 14:00 hrs) as part of the II Plant Breeding Symposium México 2018 (https://trasmejoragen.wixsite.com/inicio)

The objective of this workshop is to train participants in the phenotypic characterization of wheat germplasm. Research themes include: climate change; priority characteristics for wheat for Mexico; phenotyping of genetically diverse materials and in the process of improvement; methods and protocols for the phenotypic characterization of drought and heat tolerance, and grain yield potential; and recording of phenotypic data using the KDSmart tool.

This workshop is intended for breeders, researchers/professors, technicians and / or students from the public and private sectors, or who participate in all those activities that include wheat breeding and/or other crops.
