A high-value shuttle breeding program involving all HRDC members will begin at around April 2017 and will span three to four years after alignment with the molecular breeding strategy from a newly formed HRDC technical committee. This will involve sharing a few F2 elite breeding lines and BC1F2 populations derived from B × B or R × R crosses to HRDC members to allow for selection in different target sites and pooling together for genotyping and further phenotyping. The promising products derived from this shuttle breeding program will be available for free to all participating HRDC members. Results will be jointly published in peer-reviewed journal(s).
