Study of fertility in the varietal populations of Eruca sativa L. and their hybrids
Fertility, in terms of seed set was studied in three varietal populations of Eruca sativa L. and their three hybrids. The population varied greatly among themselves in mean number of ovules/pistil, mean number of seeds/siliqua and fertilization value. Normally the hybrids had significantly higher mean than their respective parents in these parameters. It was concluded that seed set in Eruca sativa L. appears to be a function of the genotype. The marked increase in this trait among the hybrids is a case of heterosis, and fertility is perhaps related with heterozygosity.
