Realize the Full Potential of Pollen Quality Monitoring for Breeding and Seed Production!
The Amphacademy is an international symposium for experts and researchers engaged in plant breeding and seed production. The 5th edition of Amphasys’s community summit took place from September 19 -20, 2019.
The focus of this year’s Amphacademy was on key innovations in pollen analysis and how to drive yield improvements based on these findings. We presented the results from a large scale industry study, and of course our participants had the opportunity to engage in several practical sessions to maximize the value of systematic pollen quality analysis.
