The over-utilization by plant breeders of particular genes and the widespread cultivation of a few high-yielding varieties are seen as leading to the loss of genetic diversity. Solutions to the problem are proposed and includethe collection and conservation of genetic resources, the decentralization of plant breeding programmes (strategies adopted by the All-India Coordinated Research Project for Wheat Improvement, CIMMYT and IRRI), encouraging small plant breeding companies rather than larger corporations, and breeding for heterogeneity (particularly through biotechnological methods).
