Breeding new varieties and hybrids of agricultural plants

Scientific Session of the RAS General Meeting


The author attracts attention to the mobilization, investigation, and use of genetic resources of cultivated plants to create state-of-the-art adaptive stress-resistant varieties and hybrids of various (grain, legume, oil-bearing, fruit, vegetable, feed, and medicinal) crops. It is emphasized that constant replenishing of the plant genetic pool and the rational use of plants in breeding are the basis for the country’s food security. Priority tasks in research on genetic resources are outlined.
