Improved genetic distance-based spatial deployment can effectively minimize inbreeding in seed orchard
Inbreeding in seed orchards is expected to increase with the advancement of breeding cycles, which results in the delivery of crops with suboptimal genetic gain, reduced genetic diversity, and lower seed set. Here, a genetic distance-dependent method for clonal spatial deployment in seed orchards was developed and demonstrated, which reduced the inbreeding levels. The method's main evaluation parameter of inbreeding is the genetic distance among individuals and the deployment method used andoi:10.1186/s40663-020-0220-0 fatcat:vfnmqy43xvemxogtfubbkgi27q
