This article is aimed at highlighting the timelines and breeding procedures of clonally propagated, self-fertilizing and cross-fertilizing crops in conventional crop improvement. Plant breeding is aimed at developing crop cultivars with improved genetic constitution to serve diverse human needs. Cultivar development follows well-defined activities, including plant breeding research or ‘prebreeding’, followed by the actual breeding per se . These discrete activities are the components that…

(Pre-breeding of Legumes to Support Breeding Process for Developing Newly Improved Variety)
Legumes are considered as food crops with a strategic position in the aspects of economic, food, and nutrition in the world, including Indonesia. However, biotic and abiotic stresses conditions
Pre-breeding is a Bridge between Wild Species and Improved Genotypes-a Review
Crop domestication and improvement can be described as a process of successive rounds of selection that ultimately results in the isolation of genetic diversity valuable to agriculture from ancestral
Is plant variety registration keeping pace with speed breeding techniques?
TLDR
This article proposes the concept of ‘speed DUS testing’: a rapid phenotype-based method, which could be integrated with approaches that take advantage of DNA markers, and compares methods and discusses how D US testing could be modernized to fast-track variety registration.
Molecular Marker Technology for Crop Improvement
TLDR
This Special Issue collects sixteen research studies, including the application of molecular markers in eleven crop species, from the generation of linkage maps and diversity studies to theApplication of marker-assisted selection and genomic prediction.
Breeding potential of maize landraces evaluated by their testcross performance
TLDR
A certain number of landraces expressed heterosis with two inbred testers, indicating existence of a new unrelated heterotic pattern within the local germplasm pool evaluated.
Insights into doubled haploid breeding programs from a genome-wide transcriptome and methylome analysis of Brassica oleracea
TLDR
This study has generated whole-genome transcriptome and methylome data to uncover the mechanisms implicated in the inheritance of traits generated during a doubled haploid (DH) breeding program and reveals the existence of a number of predictive elements that explain the molecular variation present in DH breeding.
Assessment of Genetic Diversity Among Egyptian Sorghum Landraces for Grain Yield Variability Using ISSR Markers Analysis
TLDR
The diversity that observed among landraces and superiority of some of them in grain yield suggested that landracing could be a beneficial tool for sorghum improvement.
Phenotypic and Physiological Evaluation of Two and Six Rows Barley under Different Environmental Conditions
TLDR
The imported materials were superior to the local commercial cultivars for several traits, including grain yield, therefore, the superior genotypes will be further evaluated and used in barley breeding programs.
Effects of temperature on wheat-pathogen interactions
TLDR
The research presented revealed that defence temperature sensitivity in plants is much more complex than previously thought, considering that both temperature changes and different thermoperiods can influence aspects of wheat defence.
Three P’s Model For Designing Crop Against Climate Change
Climate is an important factor for agricultural production. The climatic change has potentially threatened the present sustainability in agriculture sector. Very high losses of agricultural

TLDR
In vitro screening of plant germplasm for salt tolerance is the second approach, and a successful employment of this method in durum wheat is presented here.

TLDR
Proper zoning of the Hararghe highlands is revealed as a prerequisite to developing better adapted maize cultivars to the varied agro ecological and socioeconomic niches and wider use of participatory approaches should be adapted to develop cultivars which can gain farmers acceptance.

Improved Techniques for Haploid Production in Wheat using Chromosome Elimination
TLDR
Wheat × maize and wheat × pearl millet crosses have proved efficient for haploid production using various genotypes of wheat and some doubled haploid (DH) lines (after colchicine treatment in vitro) were produced using these methods.
