Broadening of genetic diversity in spring canola (Brassica napus L.) by use of yellow sarson and Canadian spring Brassica rapa L.Download
Canada is the top producer of Brassica oilseeds [B. napus L. (n = 19, AC genome)] in the world. Genetic diversity has declined in this crop in the recent years due to use of only superior and genetically narrow gene pool in breeding. Presence of adequate genetic diversity is important for further...
