Conventional plant breeding mostly relies upon the generation of new genetic combinations by sexual hybridization and the subsequent application of selection methods on phenotypically evaluated individuals and populations. This approach has been extremely efficient in providing a continuous supply of improved cultivars that have resulted in a dramatic increase of yield in most major crops. These yield increases have allowed time after time beating neo-Malthusian predictions that food production… CONTINUE READING
