Evaluation of Selected Brassica Lines for Oil Quality Characteristics

Anwaar Ahmad, Zahoor A. Swati, Zakirullah and Raziuddin    

Abstract: Considerable variation among the lines were observed for total oil contents, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, erucic acid and glucosinolates. Maximum oil contents were recovered from WY and MG followed by a group of five lines with almost similar values (47%) and these could be a material of choice for transferring this potential into a desirable background. None of the lines exhibited desired level of erucic acid and glucosinolates. Present study successfully identified lines with improved oil content which could be advanced and utilized in future breeding programs for high oil content.
