An insight in the genetic control and interrelationship of some quality traits in Brassica napus

S. Ahmad, Sadaqat, H. A., Tahir, M. H. N., and Awan, F. S., An insight in the genetic control and interrelationship of some quality traits in Brassica napus, vol. 14, pp. 17941-17950, 2015.

A study on three leading lines (KN-256, KN-257, and KN-258) of Brassica napus and an approved variety, Punjab-Sarson, was conducted to gain insight into the genetic control of some quality traits using generation mean analysis. Our results showed that additive gene action predominated in the inheritance of oil content and erucic acid in cross KN-256 x KN-257 and in that of glucosinolates in KN-258 x Punjab-Sarson, indicating that these traits may be improved through selection in early segregating generations.
