Excerpt From The Book

The present textbook has been prepared for B.Sc. (Ag.) students of Indian universities.

An attempt has been made to present the principles and methods of plant breeding in a simple language and to use suitable examples from the Indian context.

Tables and charts have been used, where necessary, to make the text clearer, and it is hoped that this would be of some help to the students.

There is a certain amount of repetition throughout the book, which is intentional in the hope that this would act as a reinforcement for the memory.

A text book has to oscillate between two opposite and demad ing necessities.

The first necessity is to keep the text easily under standable, which necessitates the use of a simple language and parti cularly, elaborate exposition.

The second necessity relates to providing as much updated information as possible within the limitations of the space in the text;

This makes it essential to be concise and to use technical language that is relatively more difficult to comprehend for a beginner.
