Doubled Haploids for Faster and More Efficient Breeding in Cassava
Paul Chavarriaga. (31/12/2021). Doubled Haploids for Faster and More Efficient Breeding in Cassava.
To produce haploids the use of inducer lines increases the frequency of success. This is the most practical and fastest way to generate homozygous parental breeding lines to create true F1s where hybrid vigor can be clearly exploited for breeding in cassava. For corn this is the most common route, and the reports described it towards using the same technology for cassava for faster and more efficient breeding.
