One of our main topic is breeding of perennial grass and legumes (hybrid ryegrass, timothy, red clover and alfa-alfa).
We would like to take a part in consortium to develop our skills and technologies in plant breeding (phenotyping and genotyping) using mashinelearning and other latest technologies.
By the way we have good relations to Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy from Germany who are developing sensor-based system of phenotyping of different crops.
The Institute focuses on breeding perennial grasses for forage, development of management models for their cultivation, crop rotation and fertilisation. Research activities in biology/biotechnology, heat and power energetics, forestry ecology and silviculture, and environmental science or engineering. The Institute carries out an intensive breeding programme of grasses (e.g., through interspecific hybridisation) and forage legumes (e.g., through polyploidisation). The Institution also carries out the DUS (distinction, uniformity and stability) and VCU (value for cultivation and use) testing.
