Description: During the next few decades, the world demand for wood products is expected to rise sharply. To meet this growing demand, there will be an increasing need for mass production of improved-quality planting stock of many tree species. The conventional methods of tree improvement and selection offer only limited possibility of meeting the growing demands. Therefore, new and innovative techniques for the creation of new hybrids, early selection and testing of desirable genotypes, rapid vegetative propagation of selected genotypes, and improvement through genetic engineering, etc., must be developed to achieve these goals.
