Genome editing is a new and promising technique that can help plant breeders more efficiently identify and build better tasting, higher yielding crops that are more resistant to pests and diseases and more tolerant of drought.
Noble scientists are using the gene editing technique CRISPR to improve legume cover crops.
Advanced line trials will be evaluated in 2019 for performance in a broader range of geographic areas as a step toward release of commercial cultivars adapted for us as cover crops.
In May 2017, the cover crop breeding network met to identify plant species and traits that would be evaluated and improved for use as cover crops across the U.S.
In addition to advanced line trials, sensor box validation trials were initiated in 2020 at each collaborator site to develop prediction models using height.
