[F.sub.3] seeds from the [F.sub.2] plants were screened for glucosinolate content using a glucose-sensitive Tes-tape
procedure (Lein, 1970) and for fatty acid composition using gas chromatography.
Seed from these plants was screened to identify low glucosinolate content by the Tes-tape
method (Lein, 1970).
Tests in our laboratory show that the meal of AR91017 has a low glucosinolate content (Tes-tape
score of [is less than or equal to] 0.5 units, on a scale of 0-5) (Smith and Donald, 1988).
Selected plants were screened for low glucosinolate content by the Tes-tape
Analyses performed in 1998 by the Oil Quality and Research Lab, University of Georgia, Griffin Campus, and in 1999 from the University of Arkansas Poultry Science Central Analytical Lab, indicate an average erucic acid content of 0.1 g [kg.-1] Tests in our lab show that the meal of AR91004 has a low glucosinolate content (Tes-tape
score of [is less than]0.5 units, on a scale of 0-5) (3).
Selection criteria were based on visual observations of yield potential, reduced winter injury, and low glucosinolate content determined by the Tes-tape
