It must be stressed that due to the time and resources that must be invested for the tools of biotechnology to be applied, it is extremely important that priorities be set before embarking in the use of biotechnology. Equally important is to make sure that an effective breeding program is already available to provide the necessary starting germplasm and to perform the field evaluations of the products derived through biotechnology.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
