Development of FIGS subsets for major biotic and abiotic stresses
The Focused Identification of Germplasm Strategy (FIGS) is used to develop best bet subsets for breeders sought traits. A total of 11 FIGS subsets were developed since December 2015 with a total of 1225 accessions (Table 1). Most of these subsets are under evaluation with partners in Australia and within PhD research of two students from Ibn Tofail University in Morocco.
