Domesticating a wild strain
    #3095884 - 09/05/04 07:55 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Frog has been working on this strain Atchafalaya . It was collected sometime last year . He has been working on domesticating it for at least one month. He would like to know if there are any inherent problems with domesticating a strain from the wild and are there any tips to have great success? Thanks

I would use a higher than normal selection pressure. i.e. dont' baby them too much.

Just make sure the niche is local.

Just know what your selecting against and for

For
High yield
adaptability
speed
disease resistance

against
need for specific temp regimes
Tendency for aborts

Its not hard to do, just a few generations and itll be just as good as the Thai/cambodian/etc etc types going around
they are only a few years old and were released without much more than a few gens of selection (if any??)

Clone the best discard the rest, then do multispore again using those.
