This form of science is basically used for improving the quality of nutrition in the products that are formed for humans and animals. Till today, plant breeders have always depended on the existing classical tools to develop new and improved products. However, those tools and methods have got developed and advanced through the years, and after the advent of biotechnology, breeders are going for molecular tools. Overall, the main job that a breeder carries is to make the crop’s producer job easier and equally effective in many ways.
This book, Plant Breeding, and genetics are designed in such a way that they can present plant breeding in a very balanced and comprehensive pattern. The principle and concepts related to genetics are presented in a very detailed way to learn how all the principles are applied in plant breeding. Along with that, both the conventional and contemporary methods of plant breeding are discussed in the book. Similarly, the benefits and issues related to the green revolution are also mentioned where the text examines the strategies of the green revolution too. The book is also illustrated in a well-mannered for a better understanding of students.
