Operationalising a breeding management system for tea tree
This project scopes the system and training requirements of a Breeding Management System database linked with computational functionality to support operational activities and genetic evaluation for the increasingly complex tea tree industry breeding program. It will evaluate a BMS developed specifically to meet the demands of a rolling front breeding program, and the breeding strategies and genetic systems applicable to trees. The BMS selected has a history of development and use over 25 years by a number of major breeding programs around the world for data storage, management of breeding resources, and the genetic evaluation of tens of thousands of trees, characterised by millions of data points. Without such a system, the viability of the breeding strategy may become questionable.
