Utilization Of Wild Relatives In Genetic Improvement Of Arachis Hypogaea L. I. techniques uri icon


  • Many of the wild relatives of Arachis hypogaea are potentially useful ingroundnut improvement, but there arc a number of problems to be overcomein transferring genes to ttLe cultivated groundnut. Studies on karyomtypes, meiosis in hybrids, seed proieip electrophoresis, polyploidisation andincompatibility contribute to the full knowledge of the genus, tho genome8present and the relationships between species that will be useful to breeder8and cyto~eneticistsi n utilizing wild epecies characters,
