Estimation of heterosis for green fodder yield and related characters in interspecific crosses of Brassica

Heterosis breeding in crop plants theory and application: short communications: symposium Ludhiana 23-24 February 1993: 70-71

Estimation of heterosis for green fodder yield and related characters in interspecific crosses of Brassica

Heterosis over the midparental value and better parent for green fodder yield and 6 of its components was determined in hybrids of Brassica juncea RLM240 with B. campestris strain CCL15 and with strain 3 of B. napus. In RLM240 x CCL15, the maximum heterosis over the better parent was observed for fodder yield (80.6%), followed by leaf number (51.38%).
