Modern agricultural crop production relies on the growth of a few of the world's plant species selected for their superior qualities and suitability as food, animal feed, fiber or industrial end uses. Centuries of selection and, more recently, scientific breeding for adaptation to biotic and abiotic stresses have been necessary to improve yield, yield stability, and product quality in agricultural species.
