Q- What are the objectives of plant breeding?

Answer- lantbreeding can be done in various method but the most popullar and successful methodis hybridisation. Hybridisation: Hybridisation is the process of crossing of two plants differing from each other genotypically in one or more traits.

Hybridisation is one of the moist advantageous source or method to improve crop variety not only in crop this method is also used in animals to improve their breed as well as production. In hybridization the crossing may be intervarietal (this means between different varieties), interspecific (interspecific means between different species of same genus) or intergeneric (intergeneric means between different genera).

There are three main objectives of hybridisation:

1. To produce a single variety having combination of good characters.

2. To increase as well as generate variations through recombination.

3. To exploit as well as utilize the hybrid vigour.
