Author(s): Besma Boubertakh and Abdelaziz Ghanemi

Plants have become recently a concern of major priority in scientific research projects, particularly crops, which could influence directly human beings health. That is why crop breeding is highly interesting, and it is urgently required to achieve more advances in this field. In this paper we put a spotlight on the importance of plants breeding as a key to find out effective solutions for certain problems encountered in agriculture and those threatening human health, and we illustrate some examples of promising tools and novel approaches, which will most probably help to achieve new advances in this field towards less costly, more wholesome and safer crops, especially those that are staple foods in many countries, such as rice and wheat. We underline also some challenges and orientations for a fruitful research in developing plant breeding.
