Role of conventional plant breeding and biotechnology in future wheat production

, : Role of conventional plant breeding and biotechnology in future wheat production. Turkish Journal of Agriculture and Forestry 29(2): 105-111

The global wheat production by the year 2020 could be increased by 40% provided there is a good integrated multidisciplinary wheat research programme optimally funded by either public or private sectors. More emphasis needs to be placed on: (1) improving yield potential; (2) durable disease resistance; (3) increasing abiotic stress tolerance; (4) adopting better conservation systems.
