Development of Oat Breeding Methods

  • Deon D. Stuthman
Part of the World Crops: Production, Utilization, Description book series (WCPU, volume 12)


My topic is the development of oat and plant breeding methods. I will start with a short history of important ideas and reports, laying the ground work for current oat breeding approaches. The bulk of my report will describe and discuss, in a critical way, the philosophies and approaches currently in use and the technology that may become available to the breeder in the future.
