Research and Development Projects: Oil Palm Breeding – BT6-12

Code :
Title :
Progeny Test Programme-Tenera(T)
Objectives :
1) To progeny-test elite AAR duras and pisifera progenies for selection of superior progeny-tested parents for seed and clonal seed production.
2) To progeny-test AAR second generation Dy.AVROS pisifera and duras.
3) To identify T selfed progenies from DxT progeny-test as source of superior pisifera for hybrid seed production besides further breeding.
4) To identify outcrossed/recombinants duras and tenera parents which combine well for hybrid seed production.
5) To conduct comparative trial of commercial DxP materials from various sources.
