Economic Importance:

  • Gene sources: potential for disease resistance in cabbage/kale (fide Theor Appl Genet 94:1078. 1997)
  • Gene sources: potential for disease resistance in mustard (some BC1 plants were resistant to alternaria blight fide Pl Breed 115:481. 1996)
  • Gene sources: potential for pest resistance in cabbage/kale (fide Theor Appl Genet 94:1078. 1997)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of Abyssinian cabbage (based on records of hybrids with Brassica carinata fide Warwick et al. 2009)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of black mustard (fide Euphytica 158:213. 2007, reporting a successful cross when B. nigra was the male parent)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of cabbage/kale (fide Theor Appl Genet 94:1078. 1997)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of mustard (fide Theor Appl Genet 94:1078. 1997, citing previous studies of crosses with Brassica juncea by sexual crosses)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of radish (based on a record of hybrid formation with Raphanus sativus fide Guide Germ Brassica)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of rape (fide Theor Appl Genet 94:1078. 1997, citing previous studies of crosses with Brassica napus using embryo rescue and protoplast fusion)
  • Gene sources: tertiary genetic relative of turnip (based on one record of hybrid formation with Brassica rapa fide Guide Germ Brassica)
