Developing varieties that are high yielding and tolerant to both biotic and a biotic stress with superior quality than the latterly released varieties is the challenging issues in crop improvement. However, such question can be answered through another alternative ways. Cytokinin is plant hormones that found naturally and influence the architecture and yield of plants. Cytokinins are parts of many plant processes, mainly to promote cell division, cell enlargement, flowering, fruiting, and delay of aging in leaves, seed development and stress tolerance also involved in the regulation of plant defense responses against some pathogens. Cytokinin play great role in plant breeding due to its great guidance in all plant process. Therefore, understanding the impact Cytokinin in crop breeding is paramount important. Hence, the aim of this paper is to assess the role cytokinin in plant breeding.

Keywords: Cytokinin, Yield Improvement, A biotic stress.
