Genetic Variability in Various Indigenous and Exotic Varieties/Accessions of Brassica Species

Muhammad Ashraf Malik, Abdus Saboor Khan and Akbar S. Mohmand    

Abstract: The study was conducted to examine the genetic potential of Brassica varieties/accessions collected from NARC, Islamabad for the development of desirable types to meet the preset requirement of edible oil of the country. This research was carried out on ten varieties/accessions of Brassica species for recording genetic variability in different agro-morphological characters. Data were recorded on various quantitative characters to estimate the genetic variability in varieties/accessions. A large amount of genetic variability was recorded between varieties/accessions for the number of primary and secondary branches, number of pods per plant, plant height, seed yield per plant. The results revealed that a lot of variability exists among the various accessions tested which has the potential to be used for genetic improvement of Brassica species.
