"EUCLEG: a foundation to boost legume breeding" 

EUCLEG is a project funded by EU, from 2017 to 2021, entitled “Breeding forage and grain legumes to increase EU’s and China’s protein self-sufficiency”.  EUCLEG is developing improved breeding strategies for legume species that are commercially important, it focuses on two main forage species (alfalfa and red clover) and three grain species (pea, faba bean and soybean). Objectives and first results are presented illustrating the huge diversity available and the genetic progress that could be achieved through molecular breeding.
