RHEA | Markers predicting optimal parental combining ability for hybrid vigor in oilseed rape (a 3-year innovative VLAIO Research and development project together with BASF Belgium)
In hybrid breeding, the major challenge is to identify female and male lines with good combining ability. The full RHEA-project will focus on identifying biomarkers and building selection models for male and female combining ability in winter oilseed rape and this for different environmental conditions. Our contribution will focus on the development of a novel functional-structural plant model (FSPM) for winter oilseed rape seedlings based on plant measurements (partly with automated plant sensors), and the assessment of its applicability to predict the impact of the environment on performance.
