Developing new varieties of maize, beans, and cereals that have agronomic or other traits that are valued by both agricultural producers and end users has been a task that has been performed for millenniums. Farming has relied on seeds bred for higher yield and flavorful crops.
If you are interested in setting up a plant breeding business or organization, this is a guide to help you get started. It should help you get started, with the right equipment, setting up a workspace, techniques for organising your seeds and documenting progress.

- This is a classic. The foreword could be quoted for this wiki as it echoes the intentions of this wiki.
- However, Mr. Burbank would not be considered a geneticist, the key to his success was trying lots of different things with lots of plants and looking very carefully for differences/mutations.
