9781332178827: Plant Breeding in Scandinavia (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Plant Breeding in Scandinavia

The material presented in this book is the result of a special enquiry made by the writer into the present status of plant-breeding in that part of Northern Europe known as Scandinavia, which comprises the three countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark. For various reasons practically all the time available for this investigation (about nine months) was spent at the headquarters of the famous Plant Breeding Institution known as the "Swedish Seed Association" situated at Sval of, a little village in the southern part of Sweden. My remarks will therefore concern very largely the work of this institution, although reference will be made from time to time to endeavors of a similar nature elsewhere.

The main object of this publication is to give a general survey of the work conducted at Svalof from the time of its inception and to indicate some of the facts and circumstances which have led to the adoption of principles of breeding now recognized at that place. For this exposition I claim neither originality nor completeness. The facts submitted have been taken from printed or private records to which reference is made in practically all cases. The one object has been, in the words of Huxley, "to know what is true in order to do what is right."

I am also deeply sensible of the great obligation I am under to Prof. Hjalmar Nilsson, director of the Institution at Svalof, not only for permission to investigate the work, but still more for the personal assistance and great courtesy which he at all times extended. In no less degree am I indebted to Drs. Nilsson-Ehle, Hans Tedin, Hernfrid Witte and Mr. Lundberg who, as experts in direct charge of their respective branches, were most untiring in their efforts to present their work exactly as it is.

While efforts have been made to render the following pages as intelligible to the general public as the nature of the subject would permit, they are addressed primarily to the scientific reader.

In order more fully to appreciate the difficulties as well as the possibilities associated with the production of more useful forms of cultivated plants in Sweden, the reader is commended to study carefully the Appendix in which are considered the geographical position, physiography, climate, precipitation etc., of this country.
