Meiotic analysis of B. napus X S. alba sexual hybrids at MI showed a mean chromosome
pairing ratio of 16.5 I, 6.97 II (rings + rods), 0.47 III and 0.13 IV per meiocyte. Partial fertility
of the FI hybrids and the ease of obtaining BCI seeds when crossed to B. napus suggest the
possibility of transferring useful gene(s) to the cultivars of B. napus.
Keywords: Brassiea napus, Sinapis alba, sexual hybrids.
