Assessment of Conventional Breeding on Cassava and its Physiological Adaptive
Mechanisms: Implication for Moisture Stress
Asian Journal of Agricultural Research,
2015, 9(2), 38-54.
The study is intended for highlighting the physiological mechanisms associated
with breeding of cassava towards moisture stress tolerance. It describes important
points including: The special effects of moisture stress, mechanisms of adaptation
of crops to moisture stress, moisture stress and improvement on cassava, reproductive
biology of cassava, current breeding goal, methods of screening and breeding
of cassava for moisture stress environment, current achievement on conventional
breeding on cassava and physiological response of cassava in moisture stress
environment. The information summarized in this study may serve as important
guideline in cassava improvement towards moisture stress tolerance.
