Plant Breeding – Def, Aim, Objectives

Plant Breeding Definition: Plant breeding is a science based on principles of genetics and cytogenetic. It aims at improving the genetic makeup of the crop plants. Improved varieties are developed through plant breeding. Its objectives are to improve yield, quality, disease-resistance, drought and frost-tolerance and important characteristics of the crops. Objectives of Plant Breeding: Plant …

MEIOSIS – 1, 2 and Significance

MEIOSIS Meiosis consists of two divisions, both of which follow the same stages as mitosis (prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase) Meiosis is preceded by interphase, in which DNA is replicated to produce chromosomes consisting of two sister chromatids A second growth phase called interkinesis may occur between meiosis I and II, however no DNA replication occurs in this stage …

POLLINATION:- 1)Autogamy or self pollination and 2) Allogamy or cross pollination.

The process by which pollen grains are transferred from anthers to stigma is referred as pollination. Pollination is of two types: viz. 1) Autogamy or self pollination and 2) Allogamy or cross pollination. I. Autogamy Transfer of pollen grains from the anther to the stigma of same flower is known as autogamy or self pollination. …
