Assessment of Conventional Breeding on Cassava and its Physiological Adaptive Mechanisms: Implication for Moisture Stress

Tewodros Mulualem and Zelalem Bekeko    

Abstract: The study is intended for highlighting the physiological mechanisms associated with breeding of cassava towards moisture stress tolerance. It describes important points including: The special effects of moisture stress, mechanisms of adaptation of crops to moisture stress, moisture stress and improvement on cassava, reproductive biology of cassava, current breeding goal, methods of screening and breeding of cassava for moisture stress environment, current achievement on conventional breeding on cassava and physiological response of cassava in moisture stress environment. The information summarized in this study may serve as important guideline in cassava improvement towards moisture stress tolerance.
