Crop It Like It's Hot Podcast -  Producing crop varieties of the future

With harvest coming to a very early end for many, and thoughts turning to next season and which varieties to grow, this month's podcast delves into the world of planting breeding and selection.  

Podcast host, Alice Dyer finds out more about the challenges that plant breeders face in developing the varieties of the future from one of the country's most disruptive wheat breeders, Dr Matt Kerton of DSV.

The AHDB Recommended Lists, which underpin much of our variety decisions are also moving with the times and adapting to new agronomic, economic, and environmental challenges, as explained by RL manager, Dr Paul Gosling.  

Meanwhile, Rothamsted's Sarah Raffan gives an update on how the latest regulations for new plant breeding technology such as gene editing hope to introduce new traits to crops in less time.
