Leucaena – the case for developing a sterile variety

The Leucaena – the case for developing a sterile variety project evaluated the technical feasibility of developing sterile leucaena using two contrasting methodologies: genetic modification and hybrid breeding systems and the likelihood that these methodologies could develop cultivars that address the concerns regarding invasiveness in leucaena.
