Influence of temperature and genotype on Pythium damping-off in safflower

  Improvement of genetic potential in safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) against Pythium species would be an efficient means of control of this major seed and seedling fungal pathogen. The type and content of reaction for plant to pathogen could be severely affected by environmental conditions such as temperature. In this study seed rot and seedling damping-off of fourteen safflower genotypes that came from...

Genetic polymorphism in exotic safflower (Carthamus tinctorious L.) using RAPD markers

  Safflower is a drought tolerant annual oil crop and this gives it an advantage over the other crops in the drier parts of Kenya. It is valued worldwide as a source of high quality vegetable oil. In the past, characterization of safflower using molecular markers has been limited. The objective of this study was to evaluate the degree of polymorphism in 36 safflower accessions using RAPDs. Sixty-one...
