Innovation in Plant Breeding for Global Sustainability

Plant breeding is an important tool in promoting global food security, and provide consistent high-quality crops that can better cope with evolving abiotic (e.g., climate) and biotic (i.e., diseases, insect pests) stresses. A changing climate conditions, a growing global population, and fi nite arableland create a critical challenge to produce an adequate food sustainability. Plant breeding innovations create a spectrum of agricultural innovation from old-fashioned plant breeding to cutting edge gene editing to achieve the desired outcomes for health, nutrition, safety, and environmental sustainability. This conference will cover innovation tools used in various aspects of plant breeding (Pre-breeding strategies, conventional breeding and modern breeding) in crop improvement for global sustainable production efforts to tackle hunger, poverty, waste, pollution, and climate change which aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The   Conference   cordially   invites   academics,   practitioners,   scholars,   researchers,  policy  makers  of  any  government  agencies  to  present  their oral or poster  papers  in  IPBC2022. Please register and submit your abstract via online to http://submit.confbay.com/conf/ipbc2020.  All   submitted   papers   will   be   blind   reviewed by our scientific reviewers. Authors of accepted abstracts are required to submit a full paper consisting of a paper title, author(s) list, address   and   e-mail,   abstract,   introduction,   methodology,   results   and   discussion, conclusion, acknowledgement and references. The manuscript should  be  prepared  using  Times  New  Roman  with  font  size  12.  The  manuscript  should  be  written  in  not  more  than  15  pages,  single-spaced  (maybe word count is better) including tables and figures. To  expose  our  young  minds  to  scientific  cultures,  we  encourage  the participation from postgraduate students all over the world to present their research projects in this Conference with their registration fee discounted.



Pre-Breeding Strategies

Pre-breeding aims to broaden genetic base, improve stress tolerance, disease resistance and overall, plant performance. It includes activities that increase the effi ciency and effectiveness of breeding programs, involving utilization of diverse genetic resources and techniques to identify and harness desirable traits from wild or unadapted plant species. These strategies enable the development of superior parental lines and facilitate the subsequent breeding of improved cultivars with enhanced genetic potential.

Conventional Plant Breeding

Conventional plant breeding involves manipulating the genetic makeup of the plants. Techniques such as selection, backcrossing, single-seed descent, and pedigree are approaches that have been employed to produce superior plant varieties with desirable traits. This innovation continues to be signifi cant because it is highly accepted by seed producers, growers, and consumers, which therefore, increases the production of agricultural products and contributes to global sustainability

Modern Plant Breeding

Molecular breeding offers a remarkable opportunity to tackle the variability and uncertainties in agri-food production while fostering an innovationand knowledge-based economy. Recent breakthroughs in molecular markers, gene editing, genome selection, targeted mutagenesis, and precision agriculture technologies provide a robust platform for enhancing productivity, effi ciency, and sustainability in agriculture. These advancements not only contribute to food security, support rural livelihoods, and mitigate environmental impacts but also hold immense potential for achieving global sustainability goals. By harnessing the power of molecular breeding, we can pave the way for a more sustainable future, ensuring the well-being of both present and future generations.
