  Dormancy mechanisms in cereals and oilseed crops were reviewed. Objective was to determine the causes of seed dormancy. The methods of control of seed dormancy were also reviewed and the following results were obtained. During seed dormancy, a mature embryo remains inactive but viable. An understanding of seed dormancy mechanisms can be helpful in optimizing the distribution of seed germination in time or space. Seed coats, cotyledons and growth hormones play an important role in maintaining seed dormancy. Seed dormancy can also be controlled by environment and genetic factors.

  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.
