Economics in plant breeding: A case focusing on doubled haploid technology

With increasing choices in technologies, decision makers responsible for allocating resources in plant breeding programs can benefit from using bioeconomic models. This paper illustrates how such a model works when doubled haploid technology is incorporated into a hypothetical lupin breeding program. The results derived from the model are presented in terms of seed prices required to achieve an 8% return on research. Doubled haploid technology will be used in a breeding program providing the price for seed produced using this technology is less than the seed market price and the estimated price for seed produced using alternative technologies.
