PLANT: male sterile inbred line, spring seasonal type, tall height at maturity

LEAF: medium green, medium number of lobes, rounded margin, low density of very shallow to shallow dentations, long, wide

SILIQUE: medium length, short to medium length beak, short to medium length pedicel

QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS: erucic acid is less than 0.1% of total fatty acids, low glucosinolates (10-15 µmol/g)

Origin & Breeding History: 'MSL SW 872C RR' is a male sterile inbred line used in F1 hybrid production, that contains the RT73 gene construct conveying tolerance to glyphosate. The final cross took place in 2003. It was selected on the basis of male sterility, earliness, straw stiffness, high oil content, high protein content, low glucosinolate content, low erucic acid content, blackleg resistance and tolerance to glyphosate herbicide.

Tests & Trials: Trials were conducted in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan during the summers of 2009 and 2010. Plots consisted of 2 rows with a row length of 6.15 metres and a row spacing of 0.46 metres. There were 2 replicates arranged in an RCB design. Means are based on a two year average with 30 measurements/year for leaf characteristics and height and 60 measurements/year for silique, beak and pedicel characteristics.
