Webinar description:

This CGIAR Genetic Innovation Crops & Seeds webinar explores topics around inclusive crop breeding priority setting with a focus on methods and tools. We present global trends in trait preferences for crop breeding, an Ex-Ante priority setting framework for product concept testing, intrahousehold analysis in varietal adoption and novel methods in trait preference data synthesis and integration. The webinar will help participants: 

  • Explore gaps and opportunities in global crop trait preference research,  
  • Reflect on impact evaluation for potential product concepts,  
  • Critically examine spousal discordance in improved crop varietal adoption,  
  • Learn new machine learning approaches to integrate crop trait preference datasets. 

For: Breeders & Social scientists, CGIAR leaders, NARES and other partners

When: February 7, 2023; 8-9 AM, Mexico City / 5-6 PM Nairobi

Featuring: (TBC):

  • Dr. Hale Ann Tufan -Associate Professor, Cornell University,
  • Dr. Martina Occelli -Post Doctoral Associate, Cornell University
