Evaluation of three cycles of recurrent selection for improvement of seed yield in safflower using genetic male sterility



Evaluation of three cycles of recurrent selection for improvement of seed yield in safflower using genetic male sterility



Safflower: Unexploited Potential And World Adaptability: Nternational Safflower Conference, Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia, 3-6 Ember,



Three cycles of recurrent selection for seed yield were conducted in a genetically broad-based population of safflower segregating for genetic male sterility for development of safflower varieties with broad genetic base. Four families from C<sub>1</sub>, 26 families from C<sub>2</sub> and 41 families from C<sub>3</sub> significantly out-yielded the check variety, Bhima. The percent increase in seed yield over check variety, Bhima ranged from 24.37 to 35.52%.
