Recent advances in cowpea breeding. Hence, plant breeders are continuously investing in these technologies to explore the genetic basis of trait variation in crops with higher accuracy and within the limited timeline. Modern science has allowed us to get away from the traditional method of plant breeding to more artificial asexual methods. 2005. Baenziger et al., 2006; Jauhar, 2006; Varshney et al., 2006). these reviews were meant for researchers with advanced knowledge of molecular genetics. of genetics, plant breeding and biotechnology. ‘Speed breeding’ enables scientists to exploit gene bank accessions and mutant collections for an unparalleled rapid gene discovery and gene deployment. The use of biotechnology in incorporating abiotic stress tolerance in crop species depends on a better understanding of the physiology of stress tolerance, and the identification of specific genes determining tolerance to a specific stress. Initially early farmers simply selected food plants with particular desirable characteristics, and employed these as progenitors for subsequent generations, resulting in an accumulation of valuable traits over time.
