D Mutation breeding
Disease resistant crop varieties are created by:
  1. Biotechnology: some procedures are tissue culture, protoplast fusion, etc.
  2. Traditional breeding: cross-hybridisation of superior parents to produce superior progeny.
  3. Mutation breeding: by inducing mutations artificially through use of chemicals or radiations such as gamma or x-rays.
