Self-Pollinated Crop Breeding: Concepts and Successes
Self-pollinated crop breeding has changed greatly from the time of plant domestication to present. Classical breeding procedures have been developed, but are rarely employed in their original form. Modifications have been adopted as well as various combinations of these classical procedures are used as appropriate in given situation for a particular crop. The topic of breeding self-pollinated crops is quite broad, and is discussed in the following sections as: 1) successes of breeding self-pollinated crops, 2) equipment modernization, 3) impact of recurrent selection, 4) implementation of rapid generation advance, 5) a recent contribution from cytogenetics, and 6) a contribution from cereal technology.
