Abstract

In plant breeding, genetic variability, available or even artificially increased, is used to improve qualitative or quantitative characteristics. On the other hand, for commercialization of new cultivars, homogeneity and stability are the important factors. Therefore in seed identification and classification emphasis must be placed on typical oat florets. During recent years special attention has been given to non-typical oat florets which combine the characters of cultivated oats (A.sativa) and wild oats (A.fatua): the so called fatuoids.
