Genetic Improvement of Seed Quality
Dramatic examples of genetic enhancement of seed quality exist relative to hardness, germination, protein quality and quantity, oil, and many other traits. Maintenance of seed quality is also paramount in the preservation of biodiversity. Readers first learn fundamentals of preserving and enhancing good agronomic seed quality as well as specific disease and deteoriation mechanisms. Succeeding chapters review applied breeding programs and explore specific crops and their seed quality traits.
