Effect of nipping axillary flower buds on yield and yield components in RHA-274 line of sunflower and its implication in seed production


Effect of nipping axillary flower buds on yield and yield components in RHA-274 line of sunflower and its implication in seed production



Indian Journal of Genetics and Plant Breeding 52(4): 396-400



ISSN/ISBN: 0019-5200

Effect of nipping axillary flower buds on seed yield and yield components in RHA-274 (restorer) line of sunflower was investigated. Generally, the nipped plants had higher mean values for the characters studied. Seed yield increased by 26.3% in the nipped plants over the normally branched plants mainly due to increased 100-seed weight. However increased seed yield in the nipped plants was compensated by increased oil content in the branched plants, thus maintaining the same oil yield per plant in both nipped and branched plants. The significance of inducing plants to produce monoheads artificially is discussed in view of the seed production programmes.
