Yield improvement has always been an important objective for plant breeders although seed yield is a complex trait influenced by several component characters. The present paper reports the efforts made to develop lines of yellow sarson with some established morpho-phisiological characters contributing to seed yield. A spontaneous erectophyle multilocular siliqua mutant was first used to transfer this trait into improved breeding lines. Both multilocular and bilocular siliqua types were… CONTINUE READING
