Origin & Breeding History: 'PPS07-162 A-line' is a male sterile inbred line used in F1 hybrid production, that contains the Ms8 gene construct in heterozygous state. It was selected in 2005 and 2006 on the basis of male sterility stability, expression of tolerance to glufosinate ammonium herbicide and good combining ability. Other selection criteria included height, vigour, maturity, blackleg resistance, oil content, fatty acid profile and glucosinolate content.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted during the summers of 2007 and 2008 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Plots consisted of 3 rows, with a row length of 6 metres and a row spacing of 40 cm. There were 2 replicates arranged in a RCB design.
