Camelina Pathology -

Intertribal somatic hybridization between rapid cycling Brassica oleracea L. and Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz – L.N. Hansen – Euphytica 1997

Summary: Camelina sativa (false flax) is highly resistant to Alternaria spp. and has, in addition, other desirable characters for the improvement of B. oleracea; however, the two species don not cross. In order to create B. oleracea/C. sativa hybrids, protoplast fusions were performed using PEG treatment.
