Agricultural crops that are genetically improved via recombinant DNA and asexual gene transfer techniques have been commercialized since 1996 and widely planted; currently, 'biotech crops' cover c.170 million ha, i.e. 11% of the total managed cropland globally, and represent a world-wide market...

The existence of numerous wild species, the variability within species and the wide geographical distribution in combination with the weak barriers to interspecific and intersectional hybridization, make genetic relationships within the genus Rosa difficult to unravel. The use of molecular...

Weed problems continue to be an obstacle in plant protection and in natural areas, causing high costs of control and asking for adequate prevention measures. New weed problems in any given area (risk area) may arise from three basic sources: by introduction and naturalization of new weedy plant...

Rice is the major staple food of the world's population. In 2003, more than 3 billion people depended on rice for food energy and protein. Global rice production has more than doubled since 1965. The production increase was largely the result of rising yields and of the expansion in rice-harvested...

In wild sunflower germplasm, considerable variability is available for disease and insect pest resistance or tolerance of abiotic stresses like drought and salinity. In addition, fatty acid composition and protein quality can be modified by including wild species in the breeding programme....

Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) forms the staple food for millions of people and provides good quality fodder for cattle in the arid and semi-arid regions. This review highlights progress made and future challenges in stabilizing its production at higher levels than at present in these regions...
