Varietal development RFP

This Request for Proposals (RFP) calls for innovative research proposals (Concept Notes) in the Peanut Lab Area of Inquiry on peanut varietal development. The effective and efficient development of improved varieties is key to increased production in peanut. A primary focus of the Peanut Lab is to partner with national peanut breeding programs to enhance their capabilities to breed for new peanut varieties that meet the requirements of their respective programs. This will be accomplished by linking US and host country breeding programs to apply the most effective tools, including those of genomics, phenotyping and information management, towards the development and dissemination of improved varieties. In many cases, it will be necessary to build additional capacity of the national programs to operate an effective breeding pipeline and take advantage of modern breeding approaches.
