  Salinity is one of the most important non-biological stresses that affect plant growth and development. Effect of different levels of NaCl (0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 dS/m) were investigated on enzymatic and non-enzymatic activities in C64 and C68 oilseed sunflower genotypes at two times; 3 and 12 days after salinity ...  Read More

  Many agriculturally important traits are complex, affected by many genes and the environment. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping is a key tool for studying the genetic structure of complex traits in plants. In the present study QTLs associated with yield and agronomical traits such as leaf number, ...  Read More
