OBJECTIVES:

1. Review the current global status of Triticale production and identify long term challenges for Triticale to be an integral component of food, feed, and nutritional security as well as sustainability;

2. Suggest strategies using modern biotechnological and conventional plant breeding techniques to achieve Triticale genotypes with high grain yield, better end use quality and stress tolerance;

3. Provide an opportunity to exchange knowledge and technologies on Triticale production, improvement and marketing;

4. Establish international Triticale consortium/forum/network of researchers and development functionaries in a global network mode for international cooperation.

 

MISSION

EARI Erzurum Turkey, IHAR-PIB, Eucarpia, ITA and IFSDAA, being scientific and Developmental organizations, are primarily interested in science-based and policy-related contributions in all areas of relevant research on sustainable development, food, feed and nutritional security, bio-energy, environmental and agricultural sustainability as defined in per UN Millennium goals.

1. Triticale genetic resources and biology  

2.  Tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses: physiology, genetics and breeding

3. Harnessing genomic diversity for maximizing Nutrient Use Efficiency

4. Genetics, breeding and biotechnology for Triticale improvement;

5. Crop Management for higher grain and straw yield: agronomy and plant protection;

6. End use and nutritional quality, value addition, food and feed products, industrial uses;

7. Marketing, policy and socio-economic issues;
