Increasing genetic variability in black oats using gamma irradiation

G. Silveira, Moliterno, E., Ribeiro, G., Costa, P. M. A., Woyann, L. G., Tessmann, E. W., Oliveira, A. C., and Cruz, C. D., Increasing genetic variability in black oats using gamma irradiation, vol. 13, pp. 10332-10340, 2014.

The black oat (Avena strigosa Schreb) is commonly used for forage, soil cover, and green manure. Despite its importance, little improvement has been made to this species, leading to high levels of genotypic disuniformity within commercial cultivars. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of different doses of gamma rays [60Co] applied to black oat seeds on the increase of genetic variability of agronomic traits. We applied doses of 0, 10, 50, 100, and 200 Gy to the genotype ALPHA 94087 through exposure to [60Co].
