    Welcome to the Plant Breeding Training Network (PBTN)!  Feel free to browse the reference materials located within the community.  To go through a lesson, please follow the below information to set up a PBTN account that will allow you to enter the course.  Here are instructions about how to create a PBTN account. Building on infrastructure created through the support of the NSF, PBTN was created as part of the Triticeae CAP and is now supported by WheatCAP, both funded by USDA-NIFA. Please take a look around and we hope you find the materials, webinars, and courses in this environment to be rewarding. Together we can meet the food needs of a growing population, in the midst of climate challenges. We hope you become a frequent visitor of this site to share with us the experiences of this exciting project. Jason Cook and Leah Sandall PBTN Project Director and Administrator Jorge Dubcovsky and Eduard Akhunov WheatCAP Project Directors         

  • Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network

    Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network         This site is designed to serve as a clearinghouse of lesson plans and other materials useful for teaching 4-H and FFA youth about crop and soil sciences.  Check out this site for information to use in your classroom, workshops, or 4-H meetings.        As youth become less connected with agriculture, it is essential to teach them about agriculture. A series of workshops, called Crop Science Investigation or CSI was created to help spark the interest of youth to learn about crops and plants. Dig into some interesting facts about Nebraska crops. Learn how crops grow and factors that affect them. Learn about exciting career opportunities related to crop and plant science. The University of Nebraska offers great majors for anyone interested in anything plants!  Check it out!

  • Correlation Using the R Statistical Package - Part 3: R Functions and Scripts Ashu Guru University of Nebraska Raikes School Deana Namuth-Covert University of Nebraska Dept of Agronomy and Horticulture 2014 In this lesson module we will calculate the correlation coefficient between one of the Canopy Spectral Reflectance (CSR) indices with yield and/or yield components under water stressed and non-stressed treatments in 300 winter wheat lines. As we analyze one aspect of the recorded data we will demonstrate the concepts of R programming and computational thinking to accomplish this goal.
