Breeding of the crop plants is the most promising method for getting a combination of novel and desirable characters all in a single plant. From the early stage of agriculture conventional breeding has played an important role to identify prominent varieties and germplasms with novel characters and develop high yielding varieties with better agronomic traits. But with time environment has also changed. Environmental stress due to its biotic and abiotic factors has become a major concern for today's breeders. So to overcome such situations scientists have developed different molecular biology tools to assist and enhance the breeding process and reduce time to get the ultimate yield and other desirable agronomic traits. In this article we have discussed how the modern plant breeders use molecular biology tools along with the concepts of conventional breeding to produce a diverse population (maintaining the genetic diversity) like MAGIC.
