Proceedings of a symposium jointly organized by the IAEA and FAO, Vienna, 18–22 June 1990. The technology of mutation induction has been accepted by plant breeders as a valuable additional tool for creating improved cultivars for agriculture and horticulture. It was amply demonstrated at the symposium that this technique has been applied with great success in many annual seed propagated crops such as rice, barley, wheat, cotton, soybean and pea. The technological problems identified primarily concerned vegetatively propagated crops and, in general, the logistic difficulties in identifying desirable mutants in large mutagenized populations. Contents: (Vol. 1) Opening session; Mutation breeding in particular countries; Crop specific mutation breeding.
