Solynta is looking for a breeding technician allround. Interested? Read more.
In the period from September till November we have much to do in our greenhouse in Ressen (close to Nijmegen), as well as in our trial fields. That is why Solynta is looking for enthusiastic, active, accurate and flexible persons who are willing to contribute for a number of weeks. The work is mainly very practical, but there will be opportunity to learn about the organization of a hybrid breeding program. Availability of a car is advantageous as our locations are difficult to reach by public transport.
Interested? Please send an email to: email@example.com
In de periode van september tot en met november hebben we veel werk te doen in onze kassen en op onze proefvelden. Daarom is Solynta op zoek naar enthousiaste, actieve, nauwkeurige en flexibele personen die een aantal weken hieraan willen bijdragen. Het betreft voornamelijk praktisch werk, maar er zal voldoende gelegenheid zijn om veel te leren over wat er bij een veredelingsprogramma komt kijken. Beschikbaarheid van een auto is een pré, gezien de locaties met het OV nauwelijks te bereiken zijn.
Interesse? Stuur een email naar: firstname.lastname@example.org

Solynta’s Lindhout cs, contributes chapter on hybrid potato breeding in Prof. Dr Wang-Pruski to be released reference book on Potato in Burleigh Dodds series in Agricultural science covering topics like:
- The scientific basis for hybrid potato breeding
- The state of the art of hybrid potato breeding
- Production and commercialization of hybrid seed cultivars
- Inbred lines for genetic research
- Cropping system based on true seeds
- Case Studies
The Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP) supported a fact-finding mission in East Africa to explore the potential of the usage of hybrid true potato seeds (TPS) for this region, and to identify interested partners from both private and public sectors to support research, development and commercialization of this technology. The mission was implemented by Solynta and took place in six countries.

The potential of hybrid potato for East-Africa
Potato is an important staple crop in East Africa. Most of the seed tubers are propagated in informal systems, whereby the tubers become deteriorated and contaminated, resulting in low crop yields. Potato breeding has not resulted in significantly improved varieties that overcome these constraints. Recently, true potato hybrid breeding technology has been developed, whereby diploid hybrids are generated by crossing between homozygous inbred parent lines. The first series of experimental hybrids were pre-screened in The Netherlands and ten representative hybrids were tested in East-Africa, whereby the yield of the best hybrid was 29 ton/ha. These results show the great potential of hybrid potato for East Africa.
