Review on genetic-environmental interaction (GxE) and its application in crop breeding

Lemi Yadesa

Interactions between genotype and environment are a crucial component to investigate in plant breeding. In order to identify those with specific or stable adaptability in a specific place, breeders routinely test desirable lines and hybrids in a variety of situations. Most quantitative traits, including yield, plant height, thousand seed weight, and other essential traits, exhibit GXE interactions. GXE conversations are vital to the development and assessment of crop varieties because they lower the requirements for genotypic stability in a variety of environments. In order to identify and advance cultivars, the large percentage of assessments of the impact of the environment on results have relied on multi-environmental field testing that depicts target production environments. Gene-environmental interaction and its Applications are reviewed in this paper. The development of acceptable varieties for the pressures of climate change and numerous other stresses, tolerance/resistance to significant abiotic and biotic factors, and advancement of social ability are the final poignant targets that GXE in crop breeding constantly strives to achieve.
