During the twentieth century, research scientists have been using this introduced plant germplasm to develop cultivars that are responsive to improved cultural practices, that have acceptable quality for food, feed, or fiber uses, and that have resistance to disease and insect pests and to environmental stresses.

Achievements. Plant introduction is a process of introducing plants (a genotype or a group of genotypes) from their own environment to a new environment. The process of introduc­tion may involve [ ]. Goals / Objectives Preserve, enhance, and distribute seed of nea accessions; identify plant traits and environments appropriate for use as selection criteria to genetically improve the productivity, stability, and quality of corn, forage, oat, popcorn, and soybean cultivars; develop and modify selection and breeding methods for genetic enhancement of genetically broad-based germplasm.

A Group (previously cultivar-group) is a formal category in the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants (ICNCP) used for cultivated plants that share a defined characteristic.

It is represented in a botanical name by the symbol Group or Gp. "Group" or "Gp" is always written with a capital G in a botanical name, or epithet. The Group is not italicized in a plant's name.

A cultivar is a plant(s) selected for desirable characteristics that can be maintained by propagation. Verma et al. () studied the influence of cultivar on essential oil yield and composition of rose-scented geranium, that is, P.

graveolens. Three cultivars namely Bourbon, CIM–Pawan, and Kelkar were cultivated in Western Himalayan region. For the sake of simplicity, the cultivar release, commercialization, and maintenance descriptions were discussed in a linear fashion. In reality, these processes may at times overlap. For instance, as noted earlier, it may require one or more years to build the inventory of foundation seed (or plants) to the levels needed for commercialization.

cultivar development. Paper III compares the results of principal component analysis when using RFLP similarity values, and estimates of similarity using coefficient of parentage values, measurement of metric characters, and isozyme patterns.

Paper IV follows the changes in allele frequency which have occurred during soybean cultivar by: 1. Cultivar, Any variety of a plant, originating through cloning or hybridization (see clone, hybrid), known only in cultivation.

In asexually propagated plants, a cultivar is a clone considered valuable enough to have its own name; in sexually propagated plants, a cultivar is a pure line (for.

All major aspects of classical plant breeding are dealt with in the 36 chapters of this book. The emphasis throughout is practical, the author's aim being "to describe in detail the alternative breeding methods and to provide guidelines for the evaluation of their advantages and disadvantages under different circumstances".

Cultivar: contraction for "cultivated variety"; a plant that is clearly distinguished by identical physical characteristics and maintains these characteristics through proper propagation means.

Botanical Variety: a ranking of plants below species but above cultivar used to recognize geographic or crop distinctiveness of interbreeding. Plant variety and cultivar identification N.

K. Korir et al. Critical Reviews in Biotechnology Downloaded from by University of Hong Kong on 12/09/12 For personal use only.A cultivar is a cultivated plant that has received a name under the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants (the ICNCP, commonly known as the "Cultivated Plant Code").For this, it must be distinct from other cultivars and it must be possible to propagate it reliably, in the manner prescribed for that particular cultivar.

Status as a cultivar is a quite limited one, with.(Examp 14 & 15). In the Lists of names cultivar groups are placed in the right column behind the plant name.

Here the cultivar group names are given in English, but they may be translated into other languages, except for Latin words in the group name. Cultivar groups can be used in two different ways.
