Pakistan Agriculture Research Council (PARC) and Muhammad Nawaz Sharif University of Agriculture (MNSUA) have decided to promote ‘shuttle breeding’.

The method uses diverse ecological environments to develop improved varieties with higher adaptability.

Alternate generations of early breeding crops are grown in different environments. The PARC chairman said the council was ready to work with the university for boosting the agriculture sector.
