Flowering mechanism in Brassica rapa leafy vegetables illuminated

By | News, Plant Science

Researchers have revealed the role of genes in controlling flowering time in the Brassica rapa family. They demonstrated that a higher level of FLC gene expression is essential for inhibiting flowering in the absence of a cold period and also discovered that the rate of repression of FLC expression during a cold exposure affects the time of flowering. It is hoped that this understanding can contribute to the efficiency of B. rapavegetable cultivation in the face of climate change.
