Our Mission. To develop strategies promoting and enhancing plant breeding education and training opportunities and experiences, fostering future workforce development for public and private global plant breeding, and securing sustained, long-term funds supporting . As ancient as agriculture itself, plant breeding is one of civilization\'s oldest activities. Today, world food production is more dependent than ever on the successful cultivation of only a handful of major crops, while continuing advances in agriculture rely on successfully breeding new varieties that are well-adapted to their human-influenced ecological circumstances.5/5(2).   The number of plant breeders in public institutions has significantly decreased since the learly s. This has resulted in only a few institutions having sufficient numbers of faculty to train students despite the growing needs for cultivar development in both the public and private sectors of agriculture. The national plant breeding workshop is the first step toward organizing a multistate. Unfortunately, applied plant breeding programs that are focused on cereal commodity crops are under serious erosion because of lack of funding. This loss of public support affects breeding continuity, objectivity, and, perhaps equally important, the training of future plant breeders and the utilization and improvement of plant genetic resources 5/5(1).

With the world's population estimated to reach billion by , more food — and more nutritious food — will be needed, making crop plants even more important to feed a hungry world. Welcome to the Plant Breeding and Genetics Section in the School of Integrative Plant Science. The Section of Plant Breeding and Genetics in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is a center of excellence for classical plant breeding, as well as molecular approaches to crop improvement and creation of superior agricultural, horticultural, and ornamental varieties.

The journal publishes full-length original manuscripts and review articles by internationally recognized scientists, covering all areas of plant breeding, including plant genetics, plant physiology, plant pathology, and plant development. The journal focuses on crop plants and is therefore of interest to seed companies and the plant breeding industry as well as to researchers and teachers in. Coordinated Research Projects. The Plant Breeding and Genetics Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Programme of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture plays a unique role in providing expertise to supplement conventional and traditional applications with nuclear techniques in all areas of food and agriculture, to create applied R&D networks and improve technology, and to provide capacity.
