Learning outcomes
The breeding methods and aims of the most important groups of cultivated plant will be explained. Selected topics will be presented by specialists - breeders.
After attending the course student will be able to explain principles of conventional and modern methods and approaches in the plant breeding of the most impotant groups of crops. Student should be abple to apply acquired knowledge during the teaching biology on basic schools.
