Population improvement in pulse crops: an assessment of methods and techniques

Chapter
Part of the Current Plant Science and Biotechnology in Agriculture book series (PSBA, volume 5)

Abstract

Pulse crop breeding has relied on conventional methods to bring about improvements in resistance to pests while simultaneously improving yield and quality. Continued and sustained progress from breeding will depend on the identification of new combinations of existing genes and on discoveries of new genes in germplasm sources. Cyclical selection to recombine genes from various sources is proposed as a means of providing breeders with improved germplasm. Aspects of conventional breeding of pulse crops, the use of cyclical schemes, and the exploitation of related wild species for breeding are described and discussed.
