Breeding Oilseed Brassicas
The present status of rapeseed-mustard crops as the third most important source of edible oils is attributable to the success of plant breeders and associate researchers in developing high yieldingExpand

High level of resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum in introgression lines derived from hybridization between wild crucifers and the crop Brassica species B. napus and B. juncea
Abstract Sclerotinia rot caused by the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is one of the most serious and damaging diseases of oilseed rape and there is keen worldwide interest to identify BrassicaExpand

New sources of resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum for crucifer crops.
Abstract Current management of Sclerotinia rot (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum) relies heavily upon cultural and chemical control options that provide, at best, only partial, sometimes sporadic control andExpand

Expression and relationships of resistance to white rust (Albugo candida) at cotyledonary, seedling, and flowering stages in Brassica juncea germplasm from Australia, China, and India
White rust (Albugo candida) is a highly destructive disease of oilseed Brassicas such as Brassica juncea and B. rapa. Most commercial B. juncea or B. rapa varieties are highly susceptible and yieldExpand

Response of Brassica napus and B. juncea germplasm from Australia, China and India to Australian populations of Leptosphaeria maculans
Germplasm from Australia, China and India was screened for resistance to blackleg (phoma stem canker), caused by Leptosphaeria maculans, under Australian field conditions. More than half of theExpand

Comparative genotype reactions to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum within breeding populations of Brassica napus and B. juncea from India and China
Twenty Brassica breeding populations derived from mass selection or inter-specific hybridization were field screened for resistance to three separate isolates of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, the causeExpand

Alloplasmic male-sterile Brassica juncea with Enarthrocarpus lyratus cytoplasm and the introgression of gene(s) for fertility restoration from cytoplasm donor species
Abstract. A new cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) source in Brassica juncea (2n = 36; AABB) was developed by substituting its nucleus into the cytoplasm of Enarthrocarpus lyratus (2n = 20; EℓEℓ). MaleExpand

Polyphyletic origin of Brassica juncea with B. rapa and B. nigra (Brassicaceae) participating as cytoplasm donor parents in independent hybridization events.
• Premise of the study: Brassica juncea is a major source of edible oil in the Indian subcontinent and northern China. It is also used as a root and leaf vegetable in China and as a condiment inExpand

Hybridizing Brassica rapa with wild crucifers Diplotaxis erucoides and Brassica maurorum
Two wide hybrids, Diplotaxis erucoides (2n = 14) × Brassica rapa (2n = 20) and B. maurorum (2n = 20) × B. rapa, were developed using the sequential ovary–ovule culture. Reciprocal crosses failed,Expand
