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.
Most of the world doesn't shun wheat, and in fact they live on it. NASA-inspired "speed breeding" boosts wheat production threefold that is healthier than the traditional plants. Hooray for the future!   They do this by using low powered LED lights in both grow spectrums in a greenhouse. With this, they can grow 6 generations of plants in a year, and each plant is a healthy crop.

​​Our planet is expected to host an extra two billion people by 2050, making food security a real issue. Researchers are now reporting an advance in a field known as speed breeding, which relies on intense lighting regimes to raise crops several times faster.

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 Outdoor, Seeds, Plants, Black Soil, Types Of Soil, Growing Plants, Plant Breeding, Trees To Plant, Irrigation

Codominance is a type of non-mendelian inheritance. In codominance, BOTH traits are expressed rather than one overpowering the other. This happens in roan cows which have both red and white hair.
