Vavilov considered that "as a rule the primary foci of crop origins were in mountainous regions characterized by the presence of dominant alleles " In his work entitled The Phytogeographical Basis for Plant Breeding (Vavilov 1935) he summarizes and pulls The book has been designed with the main consideration to serve a dual purpose of being a text and reference Keeping this thing in mind the entire book has been divided into three major parts The first part deals with the principles and methods of breeding adopted in horticultural crops propagated both sexually and asexually The second part deals with the achievements in breeding of
