Role of hybrid breeding and their methods of plant breeding.
Plant breeding is the use of genetic principles to create plants with greater human utility. This is done by choosing plants that are deemed to be attractive or valuable economically or artistically, first by regulating the mating of those chosen individuals, and then by choosing particular individuals from the offspring. Such procedures, when carried out repeatedly over many generations, have the capacity to alter a plant population's hereditary composition and value well beyond what was naturally possible in earlier populations. The focus of this article is on using genetic principles to improve plants; the article heredity discusses the biological aspects of plant breeding. See genetically modified organism for more information on transgenic plants.Author(s): Vincent Nelson*
