Breeding Strategy

 

Have you been able to set an end goal? The plant with the best properties?

E-Brida contains the tools to record these goals. A crossing scheme can then be created via the Cross designer. It is also possible to define the prioritization of crosses.

Crossing Block

 

If it is clear which crossings must be made, E-Brida supplies a Crossing Block. Which father and mother should be set up, and in what order. This makes it easy for you and your employees.

Helpdesk

 

Can’t figure it out? Users of E-Brida or Mercado with a maintenance contract can fall back on the Dutch and English Helpdesk of Agri Information Partners with all their questions. In addition, you will receive the new software updates free of charge.
