The primary purpose of Petunia plant breeding is to develop cultivars that are of high quality in relation to cost and ease of production, and to satisfy the needs of the producer, plant grower, and consumer. If this is to be attained, the Petunia breeder must have the skill and knowledge to set up the procedures for the assemblage of germplasm, and subsequent hybridization, isolation, maintenance, evaluation, multiplication, and distribution. The breeding program, therefore, must be carefully and properly planned with a set of breeding objectives.
