Characterization of twenty swede rape cultivars differing in erucic acid content

, : Characterization of twenty swede rape cultivars differing in erucic acid content. Riv Ital Sost Grasse 59(8): 367-372

In the 20 cultivars, of which most had a low erucic acid content or had none, erucic acid content was correlated with the contents of brassicasterol and C18 fatty acids.

Conte, L.S. et al., 1984: Influence of zone of cultivation on the acid composition of some cultivars of swede rape differing in erucic acid content. In a study in several localities in Italy of 22 swede rape cultivars with high or low contents of erucic acid or with none, the ratio of saturated to unsaturated fatty acid contents was strongly affected by region of cultivation, whereas erucic ac...

Nollendorf, A.F., 1969: Qualitative evaluation of the oil from seeds of different cultivars of swede rape and turnip rape in connexion with breeding for reduced content of erucic acid. oleifera and nine of B. rapa var. oleifera showed wide variations in the saponification index of their oil. The content of erucic acid was in inverse proportion, being highest in the cultivars with the lowest saponification index.

In 1980, 100 single plants of 10 varieties with zero erucic acid content, and in 1982, 60 single plants of 2 similar varieties were allowed to open pollinate in a stand of the variety Sollux (erucic acid content of 50%). Analysis of seeds from the...

B. juncea crossed fairly easily with spring rape, the erucic acid content of the oil in the hybrids being intermediate and depending on its content in the maternal and pollen parents.

A homozygous line of Gulle summer swede rape with about 12% erucic acid was obtained by selection for low erucic acid using the half-seed technique; the concentration of erucic acid was controlled by one gene pair. Selection in another summer swed...

Gorelova, S.V., 1987: Heterozygosity in swede rape varieties for content of erucic acid. The fatty acid composition of inbred lines of 11 varieties differing in erucic acid content was analysed. Erucic acid content varied markedly in plants of one and the same line. For example, a line of the variety Sv7061/18 consisted of plants with...

I3 lines of 11 varieties ranging in content of erucic acid from traces to 52% were crossed as pollen parents with a single plant of Oro, which contains no erucic acid. The F1 hybrids were intermediate between their parents. F2 hybrids with Sv7061/...

Rapeseed oil with a proportion of erucic acid appreciably higher than in traditional varieties (50-57%) is sought for use in industrial processes and products. As swede rape is a species amenable to improvement by biotechnology, further breeding p...

The contents of terpene alcohols and methylsterols varied widely according to the variet...
