  1. A. B. Hill and
  2. P. F. Knowles2

Abstract

Abstract

The seed weight of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) increased most rapidly during the first 15 days after flowering, and reached maximum dry weight in about 28 days. On a weight basis, oil content increased 5- to 10-fold in the period 10 to 15 days after flowering. Expression of control by the genes governing differences in fatty acid composition began about l0 days after flowering.
