Development of novel technological approaches for a low-cost and reliable characterization of CROP Yield QUALity Traits of target crops grown under Changing Environmental Conditions

Project description

New tools for efficient crop breeding programmes

By 2050, the world’s population will have increased 34 %, reaching 9.1 billion. To feed this larger population, food production needs to increase. Production increases hinge on increases in yields and cropping intensity. The EU-funded CropYQualT-CEC project will develop new technological approaches to deliver new tools for efficient breeding programmes. For instance, it will investigate how crop production will be affected by the environment. It will also identify the best adapted cultivars and molecular markers conferring a better grain yield and quality. It will also study which phenotyping and molecular traits can better inform on crop yield. A fourth objective is to develop the use of different remote sensing at field and laboratory levels. The project will draw on all the findings to develop new methodologies.
