Agriculture-Plant Breeder

What Is It

Plant breeding is the manipulation of plant species to create desired properties (genotypes) for specific purposes. The process involves interbreeding of individual plant species through controlled pollination, genetic engineering and finally the selection. Plant breeders are constantly involved with developing improved varieties of plants in relation to size, quality, yield and resistence to disease.

Qualification

BSc. with biology or Agriclture followed by MSc. or PhD in Plant breeding.

Scope

Plant breeders have ample growth opportunities in Agricultural research organizations, Government as well as private universities.
