Strawberry breeding – knowledge transfer partnerships and Edward Vinson.
Working with Edward Vinson (EV) to introduce and embed technologies for molecular breeding in octoploid strawberry.
Dates: April 2022 – January 2025
This project take advantage of populations developed by EV that will be genotyped using a commercial SNP array and phenotyped over three seasons in the field in Kent.
Tools and knowledge to embark on a molecular breeding programme to accelerate time to market for new and improved cultivars with an initial focus on yield and quality.
