Improving the physiology and genetics of crops to increase their resilience to a changing climate.
Gain a deeper understanding of the genetic controls of mungbean reproductive and canopy development to identify potential combinations of traits that could be deployed in future varieties to improve the productivity and reliability of mungbean.
The identification of promising trait combinations will guide the breeding of high yielding mungbean varieties with synchronous canopy and reproductive development to support more reliable and profitable production.
