Executive summary

This analysis was done to compare the value of the genomic and traditional breeding programmes. The analysis builds upon results already presented to the SWP programme steering group in March 2016. Following that meeting, a number of clarifications around the assumptions used were requested. In addition, this report also attempts to better show what value is realised at different points in the value chain. This was carried out through NPV analysis for both the forest owners, and the end processors of the wood resource.
