Modification of quantity and quality of safflower oil through plant breeding

Technical Symposium: Modification Of Oilseeds Through Plant Breeding


Less than 20 years have passed since safflower was established commercially in the southwestern area of the United States. Already hybrid varieties are available, oil and protein contents have been raised greatly, and oil quality has been modified sufficiently to constitute another oil crop for American agriculture. It is hoped that the next 20 years will be equally productive in terms of improvements and modifications of the oil and protein of this crop.
