This book complements the traditional approach to plant breeding by addressing a number of issues specifically related to the participation of farmers in a plant breeding program, and provides a comprehensive description and assessment of the use of participatory plant breeding in developing countries. It is aimed at plant breeders, social scientists, students and practitioners interested in learning more about its use, with the hope that they all will find a common ground to discuss ways in which plant breeding can be beneficial to all and can contribute to alleviate poverty.--Publisher's description.
