Until recently, plant breeders have depended primarily on classical tools to develop new and improved products for producers and consumers. However, with the advent of biotechnology, breeders are increasingly incorporating molecular tools in their breeding work. In recognition of the current state of methods and their application, this text introduces both classical and molecular tools for plant breeding.

Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property, risks, emerging concepts (decentralized breeding, organic breeding), and more are addressed in this state of the art text. The final 8 chapters provide a useful reference on breeding the largest and most common crops. In addition, over 25 plant breeders share their professional experiences while illustrating concepts in the text.

Features include:

  • Comprehensive presentation of both classical and molecular plant breeding tools
  • Industry highlight essays from over 25 professional plant breeders
  • Chapter introductions, summaries and discussion questions
  • Easy reference glossary
  • Reference chapters on breeding 8 of the largest and most common crops
