UC Davis: UC Davis Awarded $6.5 Million to Develop AI Breeding Tool for Crops

UC Davis: UC Davis Awarded $6.5 Million to Develop AI Breeding Tool for Crops. “Research is centered on the common bean, cowpea and sorghum, which are key crops for food and income for smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. Breeders need to rapidly develop new crop varieties as climate change brings about increased temperatures, droughts and other challenges. These new varieties will be grown under conditions not currently experienced in those areas, thus driving the need for novel, advanced prediction frameworks to power public breeding programs.”
