Plant Breeding

Plant Breeding is the science of changing the traits of plants in order to produce desired characteristics. It has been used to improve the quality of nutrition in products for humans and animals. Plant breeding can be accomplished through many different techniques ranging from simply selecting plants with desirable characteristics for propagation, to methods that make use of knowledge of genetics and chromosomes, to more complex molecular techniques. Genes in a plant are what determine what type of qualitative or quantitative traits it will have. Plant breeders strive to create a specific outcome of plants and potentially new plant varieties.

Plant breeding is a method of altering the genetic pattern of plants to increase their value and utility for human welfare. It is a purposeful manipulation of plants to create desired plant types that are better suited for cultivation, give better yield and are disease resistant. Plant breeding is done for the following objectives –

  1. Increase the crop yield
  2. Improve the quality of the crop
  3. Increase tolerance to environmental conditions like salinity. extreme temperatures and drought
  4. Develop a resistance to pathogens
  5. Increase tolerance to the insect pest

The main steps of the plant breeding program are Collections of Variability Evolution and Selection of Parents, Hybridization, Selection and Testing of Superior Recombinants and Testing Release and Commercialization of new Cultivars.

  • Resistant or tolerant crops
  • Breeding methods and pre-breeeding
  • Breeding of fruit and grapevine varieties
  • Plant genetic resources
  • Valuable substances and quality
