Objective Summary

• Develop a report that identifies and details key tasks and resources that impact the efficiency of a breeding program.
•A report that identifies the targets for each task/resource required to achieve plant breeding best practice in relation to minimising the variety release cycle.
•Where possible the report must also detail the level of investment required to achieve the desired task or adequacy of resource – note that objective 3 will be difficult to achieve without access to SARDI’s cost and management (see statement of non-compliance).
