A SEXUAL HYBRID BETWEEN BRASSICA /UNCEA AND DIPLOTAXIS MURALIS

Published on

An intergeneric sexual hybrid, B. juncea X D. muraUs, was produced. Morphological and
cytological studies confirmed the hybrid nature of the plant. Pollen stainability was 52%
and the hybrid plant was partially fertile. The PMCs showed 34 to 39 chromosomes.
Mean chromosome associations were 5.9 I, 9.9 II (mostly ring), 1.6 III and 1.8 IV per
meiocyte.
 

Keywords: B. juncea, D. muralis, sexual hybrid.
