Genetic analysis of salt tolerance in early growth stages of rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) genotypes

Published on

Genetic parameters for different characteristics related to
salinity tolerance were estimated using 8 x 8 diallel crosses
in rapeseed (8.
napus). Salt stress was induced by adding
incremental levels of NaCI to Hoaglands solution in a
sand culture until electrical conductivity of 12.9dSm-1 was
attained. Analysis of variance revealed significant general
and specific combining ability mean squares for all studied
characteristics, indicating the involvement of both additive
and non-additive gene actions in the inheritance

Keywords: Rapeseed, Brassica napus, combining ability, salinity tolerance.
