CropStoreDB for Coffee (Coffea arabica)
The Australian coffee production industry is focused in coastal regions of the sub-tropics and at altitude in the tropics. SCU is managing the introduction of new cultivars under strict biosecurty into Australia. In an AgriFutures and ASTCA funded project, this involves establishing replicated trial blocks of 36 cultivars as part of the World Coffee Research IMVLT (International Multi-Location Variety Trial) program.
Initial datasets have been curated through the CropStoreDB pipeline to manage the trial materials, and will be used to collate public domain and new experimental data into a consistent framework.
