About Lesson
  1. Environmental changes from season to season so adaptive advantages shift
  2. Most grow bulk seed lots in area of adaptation
  3. Less efficient than pedigree method on highly heritable traits (because can purge non-selections in early generations)
  4. Not useful in selecting plant types at a competitive disadvantage (dwarf types)
  5. Final genotypes may be able to withstand environmental stress, but may not be highest yielding
  6. If used with a cross pollinated species, inbreeding depression may be a problem
