High yield is the most important goal in crop breeding, and boron (B) is an essential micronutrient for plants. However, B deficiency, leading to yield decreases, is an agricultural problem worldwide. Brassica napus is one of the most sensitive crops to B deficiency, and considerable genotypic variation exists among different cultivars in response to B(More)
Low boron (B) seriously limits the growth of oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.), a high B demand species that is sensitive to low B conditions. Significant genotypic variations in response to B deficiency have been observed among B. napus cultivars. To reveal the genetic basis for B efficiency in B. napus, quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for the plant growth(More)
Boron (B) and phosphorus (P) are two essential nutrients for plants. To unravel the genetic basis of B and P efficiency in Brassica napus, quantitative trait locus (QTL) and epistatic interaction analysis for yield and yield-related traits under contrast B and P conditions were performed using two mapping populations across various environments.
