New Plant Breeding Techniques: State-of-the-art and Prospects for Commercial DevelopmentMay 20, 2011
The Report on New Plant Breeding Techniques: State-of-the-art and Prospects for Commercial Development' was authored by Maria Lusser and colleagues from the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in cooperation with the JRC Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP).
The Report provides information on the state-of-the art technologies, their level of development, their current adoption by the breeding sector, prospects for future commercialization of crops derived from them, and possible economic impact of new plant breeding techniques. Information from an organized workshop conducted in Seville in 2010 and a survey conducted by plant breeding companies are featured.
