Abstract

The overall aims of this work are to search for genetic variation in CID in canola germplasm, to determine its relationship to grain yield, to map the genes responsible, to see how CID varies under drought stress, and to provide Australian canola breeders with markers for those genes to facilitate marker-assisted selection leading to improved cultivars. This paper reports on some phenotyping for CID and grain yield in a range of canola germplasm.
