Abstract

Crop productivity is measured by the yield and quality of a commercial product used for food, feed, fiber, or fuel. Both yield and quality are complex attributes that depend on the genotype of the cultivar and vary with changes in environmental factors and production practices (Fig. 1). Crop improvement is the selection of superior genotypes with attributes that increase productivity or reduce the effects of stress factors that decrease productivity. Clear delineation of the plant characteristics that are to be modified must be included in the research objectives, if effective crop improvement is to be realized by either conventional breeding or new plant biotechnology.

States ranks eighth, with 4% of global fig production in 2005. Fourteen U.S. states produce figs commercially, but California produces 98% of the U.S. crop, on 5100 ha, but with a yield per hectare three times the global average. APPRECIATION FOR
