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 Introduction.

A brief and general description of mutation breeding is provided. Mutation has been a successful strategy in producing over 3000 mutant cultivars in over 200 crop species worldwide. Oil palm is one of the few major crop species, and the only oil crop not to have been improved by mutation breeding....

Cover for Health and safety considerations and guidelines.

Mutation induction is the most hazardous part of mutation breeding. The application of physical or chemical mutagens as well as the general handling of mutant materials in mutation breeding has associated high health and safety risks. Poor practice can be hazardous, resulting in minor or serious...

Cover for Radio-sensitivity testing.

Before physical mutagenesis can be applied for plant breeding purposes, the optimum irradiation dose needs to be determined. This is done using a radio-sensitivity test in which a range of dose treatments are applied to the target material. After irradiation treatments, the materials are grown out...

Cover for Options for mutation breeding in oil palm.

Theoretical and practical options for mutation breeding in oil palm are discussed. In theory, haploids are considered the ideal targets, as the induced mutation can be fixed instantly on conversion to doubled haploids. However, haploid/doubled haploid technology is in its infancy in oil palm and...

Cover for Protocol for developing mutant generations for mutant selection.

A practical step-by-step protocol is presented for mutation induction and mutation detection in oil palm. Germinated seed is chosen as the target material for mutation induction, as this provides the quickest development of mutant populations (as discussed in Chapters 3 and 4 of this manual). The...
