Re: [fukuoka_farming] Digest Number 1207
- While I can't evaluate the merits of Principles of Plant Breeding as I
haven't read it, the fact that it costs over $100 (maybe $85-90 used)
places it out of reach for most of us. I have read Breed Your Own
by Carol Deppe, and I recommend it highly. It explains the parts of
genetics that are important to plant breeding and goes into detail on
how to do it. She has an engaging and personable style and mixes her
explanations with a lot of interesting stories about plant breeding.
