Economic Importance:

  • Gene sources: cytoplasmic male sterility for sunflower (lines of hybrids of Helianthus annuus × H. mollis are used as restorers of CMS for H. annuus fide Theor Appl Genet 106:599. 2003)
  • Gene sources: potential for pest resistance in sunflower (for resistance to tobacco caterpillar traits fide Euphytica 155:209. 2007)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of sunflower (based on hybrid formation in crosses with cultivated lines of H. annuus, and reports using embryo rescue fide Euphytica 81:260, 262. 1995)
