Making crops for the future. – Innovative plant science explained

Conventional and innovative plant breeding, and genome editing: what does it all mean and how could these technologies contribute to achieving Farm-to-Fork objectives?

Dr. Nicola Patron, Group Leader at the Earlham Institute, explains what technologies are available and how they help develop innovative plant varieties to meet farmers' needs and overcome environmental challenges. 

MEP Ulrike Müller, MEP Juan Ignacio Zoido Álvarez, and the young scientists of the Genesprout Initiative also contributed to the webinar with recorded video messages.

GeneSprout Initiative is led by young plant scientists. We aim to be a voice of young plant scientists in the policy-making around New Plant Breeding Techniques (NPBTs) in Europe. Additionally, we are deeply committed to increasing public engagement and awareness about NPBTs and their significance in agriculture.
