2015 | Searle C, Bryen L | Research report/article
VC funded cultivar evaluation trial. Funding this project through a voluntary contribution meant that the industry would save a considerable amount of time, i.e. 7 to 8 years. It would also advance the breeding program generally by allowing material from the first round of crosses (B1.1) to be compared with material from the second round of crosses (B1.2), thus allowing some assessment to be made of the genetic progress of the breeding program.
