Speaker(s): Rajat M Nag | If Asia is to achieve its full potential, it will have to be through sustainable growth. To have sustainable growth, Asia must have growth that is inclusive, and growth that is green. These are not, nor should they be, separate processes, but rather simultaneous processes that focus on the quality of growth rather than simply on the quantity of growth.

1.3.3 A breeding experiment: stage two

We now turn to the second stage of the breeding experiment, but this time we will follow the phenotypes and genotypes simultaneously. The purple (Gg) grains of the F1 generation are planted and when these have developed into mature F1 plants they produce male and female flowers. These F1 plants are crossed with each other, as shown in Figure 8. The fertilised ovules develop into grains borne on cobs, and these grains are the beginning of the second f
