Lentil and field pea variety commercialisation Expression of Interest
- Commercial plant breeders and seed distribution companies interested in licensing lentil and field pea varieties for bulk-up and distribution in Australia
Agriculture Victoria Research and Grains Research Development Corporation (GRDC) have initiated a 5-year co-investment for the undertaking of plant breeding activities for the development of improved lentil and field pea varieties for Australian grain growers.
The current lentil and field pea breeding programs commenced in 2021 and it is envisaged that the first varieties will be available to commence commercial evaluation in 2022.
Agriculture Victoria Services Pty Ltd (AVS) on behalf of Agriculture Victoria Research and Grains Research Development Corporation (GRDC) will be seeking Expression Of Interest (EOI) submissions for the commercialisation of plant varieties from the national lentil and field pea breeding programs in February 2022.
Submissions will be sought for the commercialisation of the pipeline of varieties arising from each of the lentil and field pea breeding programs.
The breeding programs are being conducted by Agriculture Victoria Research within the State of Victoria’s Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions in conjunction with GRDC.
Please ‘Enquire now’ before the end of January 2022 if you would like to receive a copy of the EOI documentation upon its release in early February 2022.
