Lönnstorp Research Station – Part of the SITES network

10 April 2015

Lönnstorp research station belongs to the Department of Biosystems and Technology, SLU Alnarp, but is from 2013 also part of the "Swedish Infrastructure for Ecosystem Science" (SITES). The aim of this infrastructure network, in which nine research stations are included, is to promote world-class long-term field-based ecosystems research. The research stations in the network will work together to use each other's expertise, and have a common database and a joint website. The network will facilitate for researchers from SLU and other universities and countries to use the stations to promote interdisciplinary and ecological research. The nine research stations represent different ecosystems - forest, mire, mountain, lake and agriculture - where Lönnstorp represents agricultural research, together with Röbäcksdalen research station in Umeå.

PlantLink workshop: Genomic selection in plant breeding - From theory to practice

24 March 2015

Genomic selection has potential to revolutionize plant breeding. Developed in the previous decade, this approach may overcome some of the limitations of marker-assisted selection. In this PlantLink workshop, plant breeders and SLU researchers will give their view on the current status, limitations and future prospects of genomic selection in plant breeding.

Time: Thursday 16 April 2015, 13:00-16:15

Venue: Crafoord lecture hall, Navet, Sundsvägen 14, Alnarp
