UQ Breeding Costing Tool - Accurate cost estimates for better decisions


The “Breeding Costing Tool” is a powerful solution for allowing users to estimate the cost of crop breeding and its associated research activities and to help breeders make decisions about resource allocation. The costing tool is designed to calculate the cost of running a crop breeding activity, or an entire breeding pipeline, using the prices, costs and salaries from a single year. The software is freely available from the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation and the University of Queensland in Australia.


Join the UQ team, the EiB and AGG teams, and users from the global private sector and African national research organizations as we introduce the tool, examine case studies and demonstrate how it can be used to make better decisions.
