Breeding plants for stress environments

Plant breeding II: 151-177
Breeding plants for stress environments
Five categories of breeding for stress environments are discussed, namely (1) indirect breeding by exposure to stresses in regular field performance trials, (2) direct breeding by deliberate choice of fields with stress environments, (3) breeding under precise, laboratory-controlled environments, (4) breeding for fundamental causes of stress resistance, and (5) genetic engineering.
