Effect of Salinity on Flowering Ability in Linseed under Experimental Conditions
Keywords:Linum usitatissimum, Salinity, Flowering, Varieties, Irrigation
Keeping in view linseed utility is so high a magnitude for oil, fibre, coke, nursing and various important industries together with the area under cultivation, it has become obvious that the crop has suffered a neglect, at the hands of Geneticists and Plant Breeders of the country for increasing the yield potential of seed and the fibre quality. The present study is designed to see the effect on flowering under saline experimental conditions.
