Until recently, plant breeders have relied primarily on classical tools to develop new crop cultivars providing a raw plant-derived material for further processing.
With elapsing time plant breeding is becoming modernized and perceived as a multidisciplinary and coordinated process in which a large number of tools and elements of conventional breeding techniques, bioinformatics, molecular genetics, molecular biology, and genetic engineering are being utilized and integrated.
With the advent of biotechnology, breeders started to incorporate a rapidly DNA technology tools in their breeding work.
In recognition of the current state of methods and their application, this conference addresses both classical and biotechnological tools used for germplasm enhancement and plant breeding.
Economics, Called also green economics, of plant breeding and plant products is barely touched in this conference, thought it is huge in turnover terms of associated industries, employment and trade.
It is estimated that in EU-27 there are around 17 million farms with more than doubled number of workforce.
This book entitled "Biotechnology and Plant Breeding Perspectives based on presented  and also intended to be presented papers covers topics such as classical crop improvement with exploration of genetic resources, biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property protection and patenting of plant material, socio-economic and safety reasons or risks connected with acceptance or rejection of products made of plant GMO or with additions of GMO, concepts of participatory and decentralized breeding, infusing quality, resistance and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses into plant genome and other issues discussed at the conference.
