Every student has to conduct a full survey of the crop traits that farmers are looking for before embarking on a project. “After analysing the responses, students then breed for these traits,” explains Prof Laing.

      The crop has a wide adaptability as it may grow under different day lengths, temperature and moisture stress. Most of the varieties developed in India are photosensitive which helps in growing the crop during monsoon, rabi and arid season. It requires low annual rainfall ranging between 40 . 1. Introduction. Farmers, plant breeders, gene-bank managers, and crop scientists draw on diverse crop genetic resources to innovate, support, and benefit society at large (Smale, ).Biodiversity is an important component of ecological systems (e.g., Heal, , Tilman and Downing, , Tilman et al., ), and its loss can have adverse effects on the functioning of these systems Cited by:

Chapter 4 Crops and varieties. Farmers will need a genetically diverse portfolio of improved crop varieties, suited to a range of agro-ecosystems and farming practices, and resilient to climate change. Sustainable crop production intensification will use crops and varieties that are better adapted to ecologically based production practices than those currently available, which were bred for.

Promoting Montana wheat and barley overseas, the Wheat and Barley Committee helps foreign buyers source and utilize the grain they need. With the assistance of Montana producers, the committee participates in an Overseas Varietal Analysis survey.

Specific wheat samples are sent for testing and comparison in foreign mills. The results and evaluations are then returned and used to strengthen. thousands of traditional crop species and varieties that local farmers have domesticated, improved and conserved over generations. The communities of the Potato Park in Cusco, Peru, for example, hold more than a quarter of the 4, or so potato varieties found in the country.4 Traditional knowledge and crop varieties are not onlyFile Size: KB.

Crop diversity is an aspect of biodiversity important for food security. The loss of biodiversity is considered one of today’s most serious environmental concerns by the Food and Agriculture Organization. If current trends persist, as many as half of all plant species could face extinction.
