BANGKOK: Registration for the 2019 APSA-WorldVeg Vegetable Breeding Consortium is open now until the end of April.
This is the third consecutive year that Asia and Pacific Seed Association (APSA) and the World Vegetable Center (WorldVeg) are partnering in the Consortium, which focuses on trialing newly-developed varieties of tomato, pepper and cucurbits.
With membership comes opportunity to interact with WorldVeg researchers, evaluate breeding approaches and discover new avenues of sharing data as advances in biotechnology and genomics accelerate the pace of cultivar development.
All APSA members in good-standing are eligible to join the Consortium, which will commence with its annual workshop at the WorldVeg headquarters in Tainan in May.
