Title: Breeding strategies for north central tree improvement programs

Author: Overton, Ronald P.; Kang, Hyun

Date: 1985

Source: In: Guries, R. P., ed. Proceedings of the Fourth North Central Tree Improvement Conference. Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin-Madison: 51-61.

Publication Series: Other

Description: The rationales and concepts of long-term tree breeding are discussed and compared with those for short-term breeding. A model breeding program is reviewed which maximizes short-term genetic gain for currently important traits and provides genetic resources that can be used effectively in future short-term breeding. The resources of the north-central region are examined with respect to the problems and opportunities for developing breeding programs which include both long- and short-term breeding goals.

Keywords: breeding systems, inbreeding, gene conservation, advanced generation breeding, multiple generation breeding
