Molecular Breeding Market Trends



  • Increasing development of High-Yielding and Stress-Resistant Varieties of molecular breeding is to boost the market growth


The increasing development of high-yielding and stress-resistant varieties plays a crucial role in boosting the demand for the Molecular Breeding Market. As the global population continues to grow and environmental challenges such as climate change become more pronounced, there is a pressing need to develop crops and livestock breeds that can thrive under adverse conditions while maintaining high productivity. Researchers are developing crops with molecular breeding to meet the demand of people who are seeking a crop that can grow in dried areas. For instance, in September 2019, the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-arid Tropics announced that the All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP) for Chickpea identified two desi chickpea (Bengal chana) varieties, ‘Pusa 10216’ and ‘MABC-WR-SA-1’, which were developed by the ICAR-Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) and the University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS) in Karnataka, India. This Pusa 10216 showed higher yields during testing in Indian drought conditions, and the chickpea project is the first AICRP among pulse crops to identify molecular breeding products for commercial release in India. As a result, the research and development of high-yielding crops is boosting the growth of the Molecular Breeding Market.
