Development of yellow seeded mustard strains with high oil content

Mustard (Brassica juncea) strains NDYR8 and NDYR10 were developed using TM9 and YRT3 as donor parents for yellow seed colour. NDYR8 is a selection from a double cross (T6342 x Varuna) x (TM9 x RW75-123-2) and NDYR10 is a selection from the cross Varuna x YRT3. In trials alongwith the standard controls Narendra Rai and Kranti during 1990-93, NDYR8 and NDYR10 had average yields of 1456 and 1307 kg/ha, respectively, compared to the control average of 1232.5 kg/ha.

Information on genetic variance is derived from data on oil content in the parental, F1, F2 and backcross generations of the crosses NDYR8 x NQR9301 and NDYR10 x NQR9301, where all the parents are newly developed yellow-seeded strains.
