Genomic Selection

The amazing development of DNA genotyping technologies during these last 20 years has made the DNA based prediction of plant performance not only possible, but a powerful tool for our breeders. This statistical approach, that is globally called Genomic Selection, has been largely developed and implemented by the Limagrain scientists in all our breeding programs for the benefits of accuracy and efficiency of our breeding programs.

This technology is applied to select the most promising plants early in the selection process and focus research efforts on them. The genetic gain per year and plant cycle is increased, which allow the development of new varieties more quickly providing a faster adaptation of varieties to the market needs.
