Estimates of repeatability obtained from this study were,and for BWs of chickens at 1 day, 4, 8, 9, 10 and 16 weeks of age respectively (Table 9). The goal of plant breeding is to develop and use methods that effectively select for the best phenotypes leading to the development of improved cultivars.

Generically, plant breeding includes two major facets: (1) the selection of superior plants in a manner that is both quick and accurate, and (2) the sexual recombination of the selected.

Plant breeding, application of genetic principles to produce plants that are more useful to humans. This is accomplished by selecting plants found to be economically or aesthetically desirable, first by controlling the mating of selected individuals, and then by selecting certain individuals among the progeny.

Such processes, repeated over many generations, can change the hereditary makeup and.
