Title : THE EFFECT OF ENVIRONMENT ON THE PHENOTYPIC EXPRESSION OF GRAIN YIELD, OIL CONTENT AND OIL YIELD IN SUNFLOWER HYBRIDS
Abstract : Continuous sunflower breeding work at the Agricultural Institute Osijek results in the creation of new hybrid combinations which are then tested in a network of micro and macro trials. This paper presents the results of the investigation on seven sunflower hybrids: one standard and six new hybrid combinations (OS-H-2 to OS-H-7) from the Agricultural Institute Osijek, in a period of four years (2012-2015) at a location in Osijek. Trials were set as RCBD and the most important sunflower traits were analyzed: grain yield, oil content and oil yield. The results indicate that the values of analyzed traits were significantly impacted by year (and respectively by weather conditions), hybrid and the year x hybrid interaction. The highest yield was observed in 2013, when grain yield achieved 6.243 t/ha and oil yield 2.889 t/ha. The highest oil content was recorded in the year 2012 (51.35%). The highest grain yield was achieved by the hybrids OS-H-4 (6.257 t/ha) and OS-H-2 (5.911 t/ha), and oil content by hybrids OS-H-3 (51.83%) and OS-H-4 (51.62%). The hybrid OS-H-4 had the highest oil yield (2.944 t/ha), and it can therefore be considered as a promising hybrid for application on the recognition process in the country and abroad
