Plant breeding

Explore the latest techniques in plant breeding to develop improved crop varieties. Discover how these innovations can enhance yields, disease resistance, and nutritional content, revolutionizing agriculture.
Farmers, first of all, are breeders. They might not have the lab coats that have come to define modern plant breeding, but their wisdom, knowledge and contribution is unquestionable. To be able to continue breeding, using their own seed,  is their first right, their first freedom and their first duty. This right has been recognised in India’s Plant Variety Protection and Farmers Rights Act Black Soil, Plant Breeding, Agricultural Land, Environmental Pollution, Types Of Soil, Growing Plants, Travel Insurance, Trees To Plant, Agriculture

Reproduction is a fundamental feature of all known life including reproduction in plants. Each individual organism exists as a result of reproduction. Reproduction is essential for ‘Continuity of Life’ and without it, all life will cease to exist. This unit is based on reproduction in plants. Reproduction (or procreation or breeding) is the biological process by which new individual organisms “offspring” are #PlantsSection Asexual Plants, Asexual Reproduction In Plants, Plant Presentation, Flower Reproduction, Vegetative Reproduction, Biology Plants, Free Paper Flower Templates, Plant Notes, Flower Structure

Unraveling Tomato’s Genetic Mysteries: How Background Mutations Alter Outcomes

For tens of thousands of years, evolution has shaped tomatoes through natural mutations. Once humans entered the picture, they spent centuries breeding tomatoes, selecting for their preferred traits. Today, CRISPR genome editing allows us to make new crop mutations that improve traits even further.
