Raoul A. Robinson, author of the new book "Return to Resistance",
and I have developed a www site to encourage the formation of plant
breeding clubs which is available at:
Because breeding for many-gene resistances is much easier than the
classic breeding procedures that produce single-gene resistances, it can be
undertaken by any group of determined amateurs who form themselves into a
plant breeding club. This is what is new about the concept of plant
breeding clubs to breed crops for many-gene, durable resistance to all
locally important parasites.
The first student club in the world was formed in March 1995, and
it is a flourishing bean breeding club with some seventy five student
members, at Universidad Autónoma de Chapingo, in Mexico.
If you have any information that would be relevant to this site,
please email me. I am especially interested in university departments and
professors that teach/practice Biometrical Plant Breeding and could offer
resources to add to our site.
