Plant breeding innovation


Plant breeding

This year Euroseeds celebrates the 200th year anniversary of the father of modern genetics with a small campaign created with the active support of our plant breeders. The idea behind the campaign is to promote Mendel and his discoveries about inheritance laws and genetic traits, highlighting how these are still essential nowadays for the breeding programs of several crops for a more sustainable agriculture and food system.

Our plant breeders kindly offered their help to bring to the surface key facts about genetic inheritance and transmission as the basic principles of plant breeding while showing their work through teaser videos!

The whole campaign is available on Euroseeds Youtube channel. Enjoy!
