AFRI – FAS Plant Breeding for Agricultural Production (A1141)

October 13, 2023

Program Area Priority: The Plant Breeding for Agricultural Production program will support public breeding efforts to improve crop productivity, efficiency, quality, and performance. Research is welcome to genetically dissect and then introduce desirable traits that may include, but are not limited to: increased nutrient use efficiency; increased photosynthetic efficiency; tolerance to drought, flood and temperature extremes associated with climate change; resistance to pests and diseases; improved taste, aroma, or nutrition; and removal of undesirable traits through the use of both traditional genetic approaches and targeted gene editing.
