BREEDING METHOD FOR VEGETATIVELY PROPAGATED CROPS SOMATIC MUTATIONS. EXAMPLES; SUGAR CANE AND POTATO

ABSTRACTMany agricultural crops of economic importance are vegetatively propagated. This work was done to elaborate more on vegetatively propagated crops, importance and developing new cultivars of vegetative propagated crops. Vegetative propagation aids to fix favorable combinations of important traits, very specific chemical compositions, superior genetic variance interactions and high levels of heterozygosity. Breeding vegetative propagated crops involve few genetic crossing and genetic co...
