On July 11-12, 2020, Center of Excellence in Plant Biotechnology, Faculty of Science and Technology, Chiang Mai Rajabhat University, held a workshop on “Plant breeding via an induced mutation method and simple tissue culture techniques” for 25 participants, which consisted of farmers, lecturers, academics, private sector representatives and the interested public nationwide. The workshop took place at a laboratory room of the Faculty of Science and Technology, Chiang Mai Rajabhat University, to pass on knowledge about plant breeding via induced mutation by radiation and chemicals and simple tissue culture techniques, from a study of Asst. Prof. Kittisak Chotikadachanarong, Ph.D., the director of the center. Desirable plants from the workshop were subsequently selected for further propagating. It was expected that the participants would be able to develop and breed economic plants on their own after finishing the workshop, which would lead to breeding of new ornamental plants, to respond to the ever-changing demands of global markets and to upgrade the status of Thai farmers to Smart Farmer in the future.
