About Lesson
  1. Rapid generation advance; 2-4 generations/yr
  2. Requires less space, time and resources in early stages, therefore accommodates higher # crosses;
  3. Superior to bulk/mass selection if the desired genotype is at a competitive disadvantage; natural selection usually has little impact on population.
  4. Delayed selection eliminated confusing effects of heterozygosity; more effective than pedigree breeding when dealing with low h2 traits;
  5. Highly amenable to modifications and can be combined with any method of selection.
