Cover for Introduction.

Field testing - trialling - of oil palm is subject to many factors, chief among them being the basic biological features of the crop (it is a long-lived perennial) and the traits to be assessed (mainly yield, thus mature palms need to be produced). Trialling is the next step after breeders have...

Cover for Pre-trialling considerations and activities.

Before trialling can begin, various considerations and preparations need to be made. First it is beneficial to know if the trait of interest is governed mainly by genetic or environmental factors. If the trait is controlled by genes which are little affected by the environment then field trials may ...

Cover for Material preparation.

The aim of oil palm trialling is to evaluate field performance among a range of genotypes and to select those of interest. A basic necessity is the provision of good quality planting material, usually produced from deliberate cross-pollinations. Details of methods in pre-trialling activities, i.e....

Cover for Trial planting.

A brief introduction to selection is given. This is based on a natural process, but breeders aim to accelerate it by screening selected palms within and between genotypes or progenies under field conditions. Breeding is only effective if the trait of interest is controlled genetically (traits that...

Cover for Pre-trial screening using DNA diagnostics.

DNA analysis provides an opportunity to screen for certain traits prior to field planting. This is particularly important in screening for shell thickness. The shell thickness gene (Sh) is probably the most valuable gene in oil palm breeding and commerce. Pre-field planting screening is important...
