What are the problems of plant breeding? It seems to me
to be a perfectly good way to improve the quality of plants, but is
there anything wrong with it?
With the "benefits" from improving plants in some way, there are
"costs". For example, if plants are bred to be taller, they may be more
susceptible to wind damage and grazing.
