The Discipline of Plant Breeding
On February 19th, 2020 the first set of seminars in what is planned to become a series of ‘advancements in plant breeding symposia’ was held in Washington DC. The event was jointly sponsored by the National Association of Plant Breeders (NAPB), Plant Breeding Coordinating Committee (PBCC), and the University of California, Davis Seed Biotechnology Center. The purpose of the workshop was to provide presentations on the sciences contributing to plant breeding to open a dialog with the federal agencies, such as the EPA, FDA, USDA, and USTR. This public workshop on a range of topics in plant breeding from the public sector had the specific intent to improve communication between the public and private sectors of the plant breeding community with these federal agencies.
