Variety Description

Varieties used for comparison: 'PPS02-144 A-Line', 'PPS03-149 A-Line', 'PPS01-140 A-Line' and 'Ebony'

Summary: 'PPS06-155 A-Line' has a wider cotyledon than 'PPS01-140 A-Line' and narrower cotyledon than 'PPS03-149 A-Line'. The cotyledon of 'PPS06-155 A-Line' is slightly shorter than that of 'PPS03-149 A-Line' and longer than that of 'PPS01-140 A-Line'. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' has deeper leaf margin dentations than 'PPS01-140 A-Line' and 'PPS03-149 A-Line'. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' matures slightly later than 'PPS03-149 A-Line' and 'Ebony'. The silique attitude of 'PPS06-155 A-Line' is horizontal while it is semi-erect for 'PPS03-149 A-Line' and 'Ebony'. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' has a longer silique and beak than 'PPS01-140 A-Line'. The pedicel of 'PPS06-155 A-Line' is shorter than that of 'Ebony' and longer than that of 'PPS01-140 A-Line'. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' has better lodging resistance than 'PPS01-140 A-Line' and 'PPS02-144 A-Line'. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' has resistance to glufosinate ammonium herbicides while 'Ebony' does not. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' contains higher levels of glucosinolates than 'PPS01-140 A-Line' and 'PPS03-149 A-Line'. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' has better resistance to Blackleg than 'PPS01-140 A-Line', 'PPS02-144 A-Line' and 'Ebony'. The anthers of 'PPS06-155 A-Line' are sterile while those of 'Ebony' are fertile.

Origin & Breeding History: 'PPS06-155 A-Line' is a male sterile line containing the Ms8 gene construct in the heterozygous state. It was derived by backcrossing the doubled haploid line '98-55-013' which contains the Ms8 gene to the doubled haploid line '01-120-223' in 2003. '98-55-013' was extracted from the F1 generation of the cross 97CGH406/97CGH409. '01-120-223' is a doubled haploid line extracted from the F1 generation of the cross 00NN100821/99NN018217. 'PPS06-155 A-Line' was selected in 2005 on the basis of its male sterility stability, expression of tolerance to glufosinate-ammonium herbicide, good combining ability, height, vigour, maturity, blackleg resistance, oil content, fatty acid profile, and glucosinolates content.

Tests & Trials: Trials were conducted during the summers of 2006 and 2007 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Plots consisted of 3 rows, with a row spacing of 50 centimeters and a row length of 6 meters. There were two replicates arranged in a RCB design.

Comparison tables for 'PPS06-155 A-Line' with reference varieties 'PPS02-144 A-Line', 'PPS03-149 A-Line', 'PPS01-140 A-Line' and 'Ebony'

Means are based on a two year average of 60 plant parts for silique measurements, 60 for leaf and petal characteristics, 30 for height and 40 cotyledon measurements. Differences are significant at the 2% probability level based on LSD values.
