Hybridity test in safflower f1 plants for purity testing using SSR markers

Safflower is an often-cross pollinated crop so both self and cross pollination occurs in safflower. Checking the purity of the hybrid is very much necessary in any crop if we want to continue for further generation. A total of six safflower hybrids were generated from six parents and the polymorphism of the parents were checked with 16 SSR markers, out of which eleven markers, SES-33, SES-81, SES-85, SES-86, SES-91, SES-99, SES-100, SES-139, SES-142, SES-143 and SES-144 were showed polymorphism of the parents. Same markers were used to test the trueness of the hybrids produced from these Parents. If the female parent gets selfed, it deteriorates the quality of hybrid seed production. Thus SSR markers were helpful in identifying the hybrids which were pure which will be helpful in hybrid seed production programme and in advancement of further generations.
