A plant that has seed very rich in an oil that can be directly used as a biofuel to power vehicles has been discovered. the plant is able to grow on a marginal farm land and thus fuel oil production would not compete with food production. unfortunately the plant only produces a few seeds per plant. a variant of the plant has been discovered that makes abundant seeds but only grows on rich and irrigated land. Geneticists have determined that it is possible to cross the two plants and achieve viable offspring and these plants thrive on arid marginal farmland. a cross of the “high seed” variant (7000 +/- 50 seeds per plant) and the “low seed” plant (50 +/- 5 seeds per plant) is conducted. The F1 generation plants thrive on marginal land and produce 3300 +/- 100 seeds per plant. The F1’s are self crossed and the F2 generations is as follows: 300 plants with 6850 +/- 75 seeds per plant 589 plants with 3270 +/- 70 seeds per plant 293 plants with 61 +/- 6 seeds per plant describe the inheritance of seed abundance in the plant. Is the breeding program described above likely to result in a sustainable means of producing bio fuels? why or why not?
