NextGen Varieties

Development and deployment of Next Generation cassava varieties in record time

By embracing an array of breeding innovations to reduce the time previously required to complete a breeding cycle from ten to just two years, NextGen has developed improved varieties more rapidly. NextGen varieties include cassava that offers better yields and stronger disease resistance, along with traits farmers, consumers and food commercial buyers prefer, like enhanced cooking and processing qualities.
