About

M.Sc. Genetics and Plant Breeding

The challenges of a rapidly growing population, climate change, and the limitations of land and fresh water; all have an impact on the ability of agriculture to meet the demand for food, fibre, and fuel. To address this demand, an understanding of the complex factors that shape Botany Degree systems is necessary.

Plant Breeding in Jaipur is a science and art of changing the genetic constitution of plants for the benefit of mankind. It involves recombining genes from the same species, and where technology allows, precise genetic information can be constituted from different species of plants as well as introducing many superior qualities derived from plant breeding and genetics information of other organisms not originally present in plants.
