CIMMYT at From Seed to Pasta
October 26 - October 29
Following the three previous editions of From Seed to Pasta, this fourth edition (FSTP4) takes place in Bologna from 26 to 29 October 2022.
FSTP4 will provide a timely update on durum wheat multidisciplinary research towards a more sustainable and resilient durum wheat chain capable of enhancing food security while providing more nutritious grain and a healthier diet.
Facing the challenges posed by the climate crisis requires updated crop managements and fast genetic gains made possible by genomic-assisted selection based on advanced genomics knowledge and breeder’s friendly phenotyping to identify superior haplotyes, clone and edit the causal sequences.
State-of-the-art presentations will showcase how to safeguard soil health while reducing the environmental footprint of durum wheat production based upon higher nutrient-use efficiency coupled with better understanding of GxExM interactions.
Issues related to the production of higher quality and healthier semolina and pasta will be addressed in a dedicated session involving the milling and pasta industry.
