Recent Experiences Developing and Selecting New Cultivars by Hybridizing
If you can imagine a plant, itís only a matter of growing enough seedlings and you will find it. Chances are, however, along the way you will find something even better! Random selection from crops of seedlings or tissue culture variants is one way to find new plants. Controlled hybridizing is a way to speed up the process of finding desirable plants. I have been breeding plants for 20 years now. This paper mainly discusses the last 4 years and how a more streamlined system has been developed that could be applied to practically any genus.
