Description

Accelerating and delivering genetic gains in smallholder farmers’ fields is high on international agricultural research agenda, especially in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. This will help in improving crop productivity, better yield and higher income for farmers and most importantly achieving food and nutrition security in developing countries. Conventional plant breeding approaches have contributed immensely to this; however, they have limitations in terms of delivering improved varieties with desired traits in a time-bound manner. Genomics tools and technologies have changed methods of plant breeding in a positive direction.
