This chapter discusses trade-offs, which can represent either constraints or opportunities. The ideas presented are only a subset of the potential applications of evolutionary biology to the genetic improvement of crop plants. A better understanding of trade-offs is key to understanding past progress, remaining opportunities, and the ultimate limits to crop genetic improvement. The success of the Green Revolution depended on trade-offs between the competitiveness of individual plants against… CONTINUE READING
