WP 1: Meta-analysis, evaluation of variety testing over a long period

Main objective is the assessment of the efficiency of historical and recent breeding activities for adaptation to cropping systems with different levels of productivity and other environmental factors. In conjunction with task 2.1.3, the ideotypes and further morphological traits will also be considered in the analysis. The WP is subdivided into two tasks:

Task 1.1 Evaluation of a large set of historical datasets of public wheat variety testing. 

Task 1.2 A meta-analysis of experimental studies on breeding progress.
