In developed countries, national breeding programs have been implemented by well-organized breeder associations with full support from the state in a developed infrastructure and high-level capacity to run the breeding programs. Such breeding programs are successful in data recording and processing, and the evaluation of the best candidates for optimal breeding. However, adopting such breeding programs in developing countries was not successful due to a lack of support from government and poor infrastructure.
