Evaluation of the breeding value of the spring oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) inbred lines based on a multi-trait analysis

Published on

Oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) is the most important
oilseed crop after soybean worldwide, especially in the
countries with moderate climate. The aim of the present
study was to assess the genetic crossing potential of eight
inbred lines of the spring oilseed rape (B. napus L.) based
on the indices of associative combinatory value. The main
trait for calculation of multidimensional indices of genetic
potential was the seed yield per plant. Obtained results
showed that the selection index can enable the choice of
the most valuable lines to be practically used in heterotic
breeding of the oilseed rape.

Keywords: General combining ability, hybrids, multidimensional indices, seed yield
