Does anyone know much about selective breeding of plants? The text book is a bit vague. Why is it that some undergo pedigree selection and others the single seed decendant method?

It depends what the farmer or breeder wants. They choose which is best for themselves and getting the best out of crops. If the farmer wants a 'hybrid vigour' and a fitter plant he would choose pedigree selection i think. Because single seed decent is just inbreeding.
