Sunflower oil with high oleic acid content is in great demand due to its nutritional as well as industrial benefits. The trait is mainly controlled by dominant alleles at a major gene, Ol, with other modifiers. The objectives of this research were to map the oil content, oleic acid and linoleic acid content in sunflower seeds. An F2 mapping population from… CONTINUE READING
