The Self-Pollinated Crop Breeding course covers the common breeding methods used to improve self-pollinated crops and the theoretical basis for self-pollinated crops. Students learn standard breeding methods and theories associated with self-pollinated and inbred cross-pollinated crops, specifically, pedigree, bulk, single-seed descent, and backcross breeding methods. The course can be taken individually or as the 1st of 3 modules in Plant Breeding (Module 2: Germplasm & Genes, and Module 3: Cross-Pollinated Crop Breeding).

The target audience is the college graduate level learner and agriculture professionals.

Teachers include: P. Stephen Baenziger, Leah Sandall, and Diane Nolan
