Yield structure of selected varieties of white mustard grown as main crops and their impact on the potato cyst nematode (Globodera rostochiensis) I. Dynamics of plant growth, flowering and seed yield

Journal Title: Rośliny Oleiste - Oilseed Crops - Year 2013, Vol 34, Issue 1

Abstract

In 2008–2010 experiments were carried out on the field with light loamy sand belonging to the Research Division of the Plant Breeding and Acclimatization Institute – National Research Institute in Bydgoszcz. The aim of the experiments was to compare ten white mustard varieties (Accent, Bamberka, Bardena, Barka, Concerta, Metex, Nakielska, Radena, Rota and Sirola), cultivated as the main crop. Observations according to plant growth dynamics and flowering were carried at three times. Yield of seed and 1000 seed weight were estimated after harvest. The varieties of white mustard differed significantly in terms of plant height, flowering, yield of seed and 1000 seed weight. The greatest height of plants and yield of seeds was obtained for the varieties Accent, Concerta, Bardena i Radena. The least share of flowering plants was found for varieties Sirola and Accent, and the greatest weight of 1000 seed – for Accent, Concerta, Bardena and Rota. The years of investigations had an influence on all the examined parameters. The largest yields of seed and the highest plants of white mustard were recorded in 2009 characterized with high rainfalls in May and June.
