What is GRAIN 4 GAIN platform?
G4G platform – a commercial platform offering opportunity to wheat breeding programs worldwide to enhance winter cereal yields by introducing novel genetic variability
F2 grains from nearly 5000 wheat crosses are available to order. By the end of 2019, almost 7000 crosses will be available.
Relevant data is accessible in a database below (scroll down), from which you can choose and order F2 grains from all crosses produced.
The screening of more than 10,000 wheat genotypes over 15 different growing seasons and across many environments in combination with 25 years of intensive phenotyping, crossing and breeding allowed us to gain valuable scientific and practical knowledge about most promising parents which ensure promising gene recombinations for many agro-ecological environments worldwide.
When these parents are crossed with newly developed varieties released in European countries, exceptionally good initial breeding material can be obtained, which has a desirable genetic background composition suitable for European and similar agro-ecological conditions in the world.
Yields obtained over last 40 years by Serbian wheat varieties in more than 35 countries (EU-28, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Iran, Canada, Argentina, etc.) confirm that it is possible to create in Serbia an excellent wheat genetic material for different environments in all parts of the world.
Biogranum annually produces 2000 to 3000 new cereal crosses using very best European and worldwide registered varieties and carefully selected and adapted advanced lines.
