WHEAt and barley Legacy for Breeding Improvement

Programme Phenotyping training

Targeted public Young scientists, breeders, researchers
Maximum attendance 30 persons
Short description and program

 

The goal of the training is to provide a practical and direct experience on the plant phenotyping techniques for the most relevant agronomic traits (frost and drought tolerance, major leaf disease, plant growth and canopy descriptors).
