Genetic Diversity and Breeding: Ensuring Sustainable Vegetable Crop Production

EasyChair Preprint no. 13156

9 pagesDate: May 1, 2024


Maintaining genetic diversity within vegetable crops and employing effective breeding strategies are crucial for ensuring long-term sustainability in agriculture. This abstract highlights the significance of genetic diversity and breeding for traits such as disease resistance, drought tolerance, and nutritional content in vegetable crops.


Genetic diversity serves as the foundation for crop improvement by providing a wide range of genetic resources within a species. It offers the potential to develop cultivars with enhanced resilience to environmental challenges and improved nutritional value. However, modern agricultural practices and the narrowing of genetic pools have led to a decline in genetic diversity, making crops more vulnerable to diseases, pests, and changing climatic conditions.
