Discuss two ways of incorporating desirable characteristics in crop varieties.

 Two ways of incorporating desirable characteristics in crop varieties are:-

(a) Hybridization- This refers to crossing between two genetically dissimilar plants/crops

(b) By introducing a gene that would provide the desirable charateristic. This results in genetically modified crops

Green Revolution:

Traditional farming can only yield limited food for humans and animals. Better management can increase yield but only to a limited extent.

But plant breeding as a technology increased yield to a very large extent. In India, “Green Revolution” was responsible for our country to not only meet our requirements in food production but also helped us to export it.

Monkambu Sambasivan Swaminathan (M.S. Swaminathan) initi­ated collaboration with Dr. Borlaug which reached the highest point into the “Green Revo­lution” through introduction of Mexican varieties of wheat in India. Green Revolution de­pended mainly on plant breeding techniques for high yielding and disease resistant varieties in wheat, rice, maize, etc.

The 2 ways are- 1. Hybridisation It is a crossing between 2 genetically dissimilar plants to produce a new variety which would have the characteristics of the parent plant 2. Recombinant DNA technology In this method a gene with the desirable characteristics is introduced in another organism in order to modify it Hope it helped Thank you
