GENETIC ANALYSIS OF FATTY ACIDS PROFILE IN SUNFLOWER

Published on

Genetic control of oil content and its fatty acids profile was studied in EC 68414
population of sunflower. A random sample of 32 males and 96 females was selected
and mated in N.C. 1 design. Both additive and dominance components of variance
were significant for stearic acid and oil content Low h~ was observed for these
traits. The negative estimates of additive component of variance were observed for
oleic acid, linoleic acid and palmictic acid content. Dominance component of variance
was more important for all the quality characters.
