Plant Breeding: What do we actually do? Plant Breeding is the science, art, and business of improving plants for human benefit. Easy Description Cross good germplasm by good germplasm Generate a series of genetically different exptl. parents Pick the right tester Select the best experimental line via extensive field testing More complicated Description delta(G)=1/C(0.25*k1*V(a)1.2/sqrt(V(P)1.2) + 0.25*k2*V(a)2.1/sqrt(V(P))2.1)8 9.
