The Influence of Algaren and Cultivar on Yield And Yield Components of Rapeseed
Rapeseed is an annual oil and protein crops. This study was carried out using Algaren (0, 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3%) and two cultivars of rapeseed (Hyola 401 and ROS) in a factorial experiment based on randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications at a field in Firoozabad, State of Fars, Iran. The Algaren altered yield and yield components of rapeseed. The highest values of lateral shoots, pods per main branch, seeds per pod, 1000-seed weight and grain yield were obtained at 0.3%. The cultivar Hyola 401 revealed the higher number of lateral shoots and pods per main branch. The seeds per pod and 1000-seed weight was higher at cultivar ROS. The grain yield was not significantly different among two cultivars.
