RBTN: US Regional Breeders Testing Network

Project Overview
NameRBTN: US Regional Breeders Testing Network
DescriptionThe Regional Breeders Testing Network (RBTN) is a multi-environment trial (MET) conducted each year on conventional germplasm lines. Previous to initiation of the RBTN, public breeding programs lacked a single-year MET due to resource limitations, but now the RBTN serves to fill the need of a MET and does so at the nominal cost of conducting a single location trial for each participating scientist. With the support of Cotton Incorporated, numerous cotton scientists routinely evaluate conventional germplasm collecting data on yield and fiber quality as well as biotic/abiotic stresses such as nematodes, tarnished plant bug, fusarium and verticillium wilt, drought, and heat tolerance.
