Acceding to Ahmed Jahoor, Nordic Seed head of breeding and research, such event allows us to interact with other breeding companies and other wheat research group and to get updated about the latest discoveries and trends in wheat research and breeding technologies. This is Also the platform, where we can get direct contact with the researchers and breeders and get most appropriate genetic material for our wheat breeding.
