About this book

The present status of rapeseed-mustard crops as the third most important source of edible oils is attributable to the success of plant breeders and associate researchers in developing high yielding varieties with improved quality and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. However, the need to maximize the production gains and quality at lower economic cost is greater than ever before. "Breeding Oilseed Brassicas" reviews the past accomplishments in order to identify research gaps and suggest ways and means to meet the challenge of sustainable productivity. Theoretical and applied aspects of breeding, genetics, cytogenetics, crop physiology and biotechnology are covered. The emphasis is on the application of theoretical knowledge to the solution of problems that confront Brassica breeders.
