  1. Abstract, Experimental Agriculture, 1996 Farmer participatory approaches for the identification or breeding of improved crop cultivars can be usefully categorized into participatory varietal selection (PVS) and participatory plant breeding (PPB). Various PVS and PPB methods are reviewed. PVS is a...
  2. Abstract,Renewable Agriculture and Food Systems, 2005 Organic and low-input farmers often plant seed varieties that have been selected under conventional practices, traditionally including high inputs of artificial fertilizers, crop protection chemicals and/or water. In addition, these crops are...
  3. This publication serves as a reference on the principles and procedures used to obtain hybrid seed of self and cross-pollination crop plants. For many crops, descriptions of these procedures are passed orally from experienced to inexperienced persons and are not available in the literature. This...
  4. This book provides a broad, general introduction to the principles of plant breeding, and has been written primarily for senior undergraduate and graduate students of agriculture, horticulture and applied biology. Only a familiarity with basic botany, cytogenetics and some statistics is assumed....
  5. 1977-01-19 This book is designed as a text to be used in an introductory course in plant breeding for advanced undergraduate students. Every attempt has been made to relate plant breeding to underlying genetic principles.
  6. As ancient as agriculture itself, plant breeding is one of civilization's oldest activities. Today, world food production is more dependent than ever on the successful cultivation of only a handful of major crops, while continuing advances in agriculture rely on successfully breeding new...
  7. The papers in this volume were originally presented at a workshop on participatory plant breeding which was held in Wageningen, the Netherlands, on 26-29 July 1995. The workshop was convened to crystallize a novel approach that plant breeders genetic resource conservationists and social...
  8. Abstract, PSU Ag Science Magazine, 2019 Scientists are trying to unlock the secrets of stress response. If they succeed, crops may be designed to deal with a warming planet. Understanding how plants react to environmental stress and how we humans can enhance or direct their responses is a key...
  9. 2003-01-01 This book integrates many fields to help students understand the complexity of the basic science that underlies crop and food production.
