In Quedlinburg, our tour will take us to the JKI Institute for Breeding Research on Agricultural Crops. The institute’s work concentrates primarily on studying plant genetic resources for food and agriculture with a specific focus on diversity in yield, qualitative characteristics and phytopathological properties and how these relate to DNA-level differences. The researchers combine methods and results using SMART Breeding methodology to ensure innovative plant breeding.

The tour also includes a visit to Giessen University’s Experimental Farm in Rauischholzhausen (Hesse). This training and experimental farm focuses on research and teaching in plant cultivation and plant breeding. The research focuses inter alia on breeding higher yield rape varieties, a field in which Giessen University boasts a strong reputation across the country.
