Date: Time: 9:00 am–3:00 pm
Plant Sciences Hall Room: 280 or on Zoom
Additional Info: PLSH
Contact: Blaine Johnson, (402) 472-6585, blaine.e.johnson@unl.edu
The workshop will be available for either in-person or online participation via Zoom.

Centered around designing and managing a hybrid breeding program, the workshop will focus on the decisions that must be made when managing a breeding pipeline that results in the release or commercialization of a hybrid cultivar. Strategies for managing an effective and efficient hybrid breeding program under the restrictions of resource limitations will be the focus but will always consider the underlying genetic principles. The workshop will reflect a strong influence of applied hybrid breeding from an industry perspective.

Instructors are Blaine Johnson, agronomy and horticulture adjunct professor and lecturer, and Keith Boldman, research scientist at Corteva AgriscienceTM.
