Plant breeding is an important field of research for improvement of yield and quality of plant production. The achievements of plant breeding have had tremendous on economic and national development. Advance techniques and tools would be able to assist plant breeders in their practice of selection and strategies for plant improvement.

This Conference will be its third debut of Plant Breeding Conference Series organised by the Genetics Society of Malaysia, which begun in 2012. Due to the overwhelming success of the First and the Second Conferences, we are pushing this Third Conference into a bigger role in strengthening plant breeding for the future.

This 2-day conference will address the latest advances in various plant breeding activities and its achievements. More than 20 keynote and invited speakers will be presenting their views and findings in this conference. The conference will provide opportunities and gather as many plant breeders, agricultural scientists, geneticist, researchers, academicians, biotechnologies and student to share their latest knowledge, experience and achievements in plant improvement programmes.
