Heterosis in Plant Breeding Charles W. Stuber U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, Department of Genetics, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina ‐, USACited by: Molecular biology and the origin of species: heterosis, protein polymorphism and animal breeding.

Published by University of Washington Press, Seattle () ISBN ISBN Research on heterosis, male sterility systems, outcrossing mechanisms, disease/insect management, and grain quality considerations in hybrid rice are reviewed.

The book contains a wealth of useful information for practicing hybrid rice breeders, seed producers, researchers, and students of plant by: Heterosis in Plant Breeding. In this review, a selected group of investigations undertaken throughout this century into the genetic, physiological and biochemical basis of heterosis are outlined, Author: Charles Stuber.

Heterosis dominated the thinking of plant and animal geneticists in the s and s as evidenced by the now classic book entitled Heterosis edited by John W. Gowen and published by Iowa State University Press. In fact, the entire U.S. hybrid maize industry and much of the world maize industry is found­ ed on heterosis.

Part of the Handbook of Plant Breeding book series (HBPB, volume 6) Abstract Heterosis is a phenomenon not well understood but has been exploited extensively in breeding. Abstract. There are many definitions for heterosis: Heterosis or hybrid vigour is the superiority of a hybrid offspring over the average of both its genetically distinct parents; hybrid vigour is the increased vigour or other superior qualities arising from the crossbreeding of genetically different plants; heterosis is superiority of F 1 in one or more characters over its better parental or.

Plant Breeding: Past, Present and Future 1st ed. Edition His research covered methods of kale population improvement, the genetic basis of heterosis in swedes, the theory and practice of linkage and QTL analysis in tetraploid potatoes, and breeding for quantitative resistance to pests and diseases (clubroot in kale, powdery mildew in Cited by: Hybrid vigor or heterosis is defined as a superior performance of hybrids, for many traits, relative to their parental inbred lines (see Chapter 8 of this book).

Hybrids have been widely used in crop and tree breeding since ancient times, although the molecular mechanisms underlying heterosis have yet.

The presence of significant heterosis for grain yield was also accompanied by heterosis for yield components, particularly length-based traits such as plant height, peduncle length and spike length. The cross Pasban- 90 × Sehar was an elite cultivar and showed significant heterobeltiosis.

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

However, in practical plant breeding the superiority of F1 over mid parent is of no use since it does not offer the hybrid any advantage over the better parent.

Therefore, average heterosis is of little or no use to the plant breeder. More generally, heterosis is estimated over the superior parent such heterosis is referred as heterosis. Abstract Production of hybrids of seed-propagated horticultural crops is one of the most successful plant breeding techniques because it exploits heterosis, promotes homogeneity, and is a way for commercial breeders to control their products without the necessity for legal patents or plant breeder's.

I know I'm still a fair way from my ultimate goals but in the mean time I'm looking for any good books that go into detail on agricultural plant breeding methods, plant biology, genetics and.

Selection of parents for the generation of heterosis. Heterosis refers to the superior phenotypes observed in hybrids relative to their inbred parents with respect to.

Heterotic groups and patterns are of fundamental importance in hybrid breeding. We start with definitions of these tenns. Theoretical and experimental arguments are given demonstrating the superiority of inter‐group compared with intra‐group crosses under two aspects: (i) a higher mean heterosis and hybrid perfonnance and (ii) a reduced specific combining ability (SCA) variance and lower.

Overdominance (heterosis) was displayed for root mass, leading to slight heterosis for total plant mass. Stem contents of GA 19,20,1 were similar across the Brassica genotypes and increased prior to bolting; elongation was correlated with endogenous GA but heterosis for shoot growth was modest.

Fixation of heterosis. Hybrid vigour has been exploited in both self as well as cross pollinated species. The expression of heterosis is restricted to the hybrid individual (F1 generation) and it dissipates in the advanced generations or in the progenies derived from it due to segregation and recombination which disturb the original heterotic combination of genes.

Another route is to harness heterosis. Hybrid breeding revolutionized agriculture in the twentieth century. In the first hybrid rice variety was released in China, leading to a yield gain of.

Heterotic groups are created by plant breeders to classify inbred lines, and can be progressively improved by reciprocal recurrent selection. Heterosis is used to increase yields, uniformity, and vigor. Hybrid breeding methods are used in maize, sorghum, rice, sugar beet, onion, spinach, sunflowers, broccoli and to create a more psychoactive cannabis.

Plant breeding is the art and science of changing the traits of plants in order to produce desired characteristics. Topics covered includes: Importance Of Plant Breeding, Cytological Principles of Plant Breeding, Heterosis, Inbreeding and Its Consequences or Applications, Self-incompatibility in Plants, Cytoplasmic Male Sterility, Breeding.

Many of the crops widely grown today stem from a very narrow genetic base; understanding and preserving crop genetic resources is vital to the security of food systems worldwide.

The emphasis of the series is on methodology, a Author: Irwin Goldman. Essentials of Plant Breeding is a textbook for a first-semester course in plant breeding.

This book describes how modes of reproduction affect the choice of breeding methods, and outlines the breeding methods appropriate for self-pollinated, cross-pollinated, and asexually propagated species.

Heterosis It is defined as the superiority of F 1 hybrid over both the parents in terms of yield or some other characters. The term heterosis was first used by Shull in Types of heterosis 1. Average heterosis It is the heterosis where F 1 is superior to mid parent value. In other words superior to average of two parents.

Heterosis and Hybrid Seed Production in Agronomic Crops discusses how heterosis or “hybrid vigor” has played a major role in improving crop productivity and quality in order to feed the ever-increasing human population, particularly in developing countries. Plant breeders, agronomists, seed producers, and farmers will discover why the development of hybrids in the world's major food crops.

George Shull’s seminal article ‘The composition of a field of maize’ marked the ‘exploitation of heterosis in plant breeding, surely one of genetics’ greatest triumphs’.

Hybrid corn became a ‘symbol of American agriculture’ and ‘the paradigm for all developments of F1 hybrid crop varieties and more generally breeding. Heterosis and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Heterosis, also called hybrid vigour, the increase in such characteristics as size, growth rate, fertility, and yield of a hybrid organism over those of its parents.

Plant and animal breeders exploit heterosis by mating two different pure-bred lines that have certain desirable traits. The first-generation offspring generally show, in greater measure, the desired characteristics of both parents. Heterosis refers to the phenomenon that progeny of diverse varieties of a species or crosses between species exhibit greater biomass, speed of development, and fertility than both parents.

Various models have been posited to explain heterosis, including dominance, overdominance, and pseudo-overdominance. In this Perspective, we consider that it might be useful to the field to abandon these.

Increasing grain yield is a long-term goal in crop breeding to meet the demand for global food security. Heterosis, when a hybrid shows higher performance for a trait than both parents, offers an Cited by: Some aspects of work carried out on heterosis and its practical exploitation in both self- and cross-pollinated crops since are surveyed.
