Agrigenomics enables improving productivity and sustainability of crop and livestock production.
The rapidly growing human population and the consequences of climate change, create the urgency to maximize production yield and adapt to changing conditions in the agricultural sector. Yet, the traditional breeding techniques are costly and too slow to bring about the necessary changes in a timely manner.
For this reason, more and more agricultural producers are turning to Agrigenomics. This field leverages the developments in various omics fields, advancements in data analysis techniques (Machine Learning & AI) and ever-increasing computational power to elucidate how genetics affect traits of interest.
As a result, it enables data-driven decisions in agricultural breeding and makes it possible to obtain plants, crops and livestock with wanted traits much faster and at a far lower cost.
