Abstract

Genetic manipulation of a large germplasm collection of sunflower (Helianthus L.) at the I.C.C.P.T. Fundulea, Romania, resulted in a number of valuable new hybrid cultivars: (Romsun 59, Sorem 82, Felix 206, Select, Super, Fundulea 206 etc.). Based on the study of the available germplasm, research is carried out at this institute responsible for sunflower breeding on international level, in order to transfer new valuable genes from wild species to cultivated varieties (e.g. from H. acrophyllus to H. annuus). As it is difficult to anticipate the future utilization of different genetic resources, a possible comprehensive gene collection is intended to be put out. Results in detail are published in a special periodical - Helia - edited in collaboration at I.C.C.P.T. Fundulea.
