Cyto-morphological and molecular characterization of Cajanus cajan × C. scarabaeoides F1 hybrid

Cajanus scarabaeoides has many desirable agronomic traits that deserve attention for introgression into pigeonpea cultivars. An inter-specific F1 hybrid was raised using C. cajan (ICP-26) as seed parent and C. scarabaeoides (ICPW-94) as pollen parent. Hybridity of the F1 plant was affirmed by analyzing the morphological attributes, such as seed coat color… CONTINUE READING
