    CBS PUBLICATION Genetic Basis And Methods Of Plant Breeding by Singh S

    The present book will make available all relevant information regarding current status of plant genetic resources, emerging trends in breeding methodology, conventional and nonconventional methods of exploiting heterosis in cross-, often cross- and self.fertilized crop species, role of breeding techniques in crop improvement, achievements and future prospects of biotechnology in crop. improvement programmes and patenting of plant materials. This information will help in minimizing the gap between the theoretical yield potential of crop varieties and their yields harvested at farmers' fields. One of the main objectives of writing the present book was to describe a number of fascinating techniques which are now being used to provide new opportunities to the plant breeder by considerably reducing the time period of crop improvement programmes. For example, the molecular transfer of economically valuable genes to important food and nonfood crops offers completely new possibilities of crop improvement and leads to creation of crops with properties which are unachievable by conventional breeding procedures. The present book will be a great facility to the students of plant breeding and related disciplines.
