Active members are eligible to receive new elite parental lines (A and R lines for testing; A, B, and R lines for commercial licenses). In 2016, HRDC shared 12 A lines and 15 R lines. In addition to these A and R lines, F2 seeds of select R/R and B/B crosses will be shared together with information on different target trait markers to allow for easy selection. In addition, as a ‘welcome kit,’ HRDC will provide 40 lines already available (released varietal germplasm plus parental lines) to all new members. Existing members who have not availed of these lines in the past can also receive these lines from HRDC without any additional cost.
