Adaptation, genes, locus, selection, yield


The time of flowering is one of the primary adaptive attributes in the survival strategy of flowering plants. This feature is a significant ingredient of crop adaptation and yield. When hypothetical studies are applied on the flowering time in pea, the short day and long day circumstances of growing season are taken into consideration. In the same way, the flowering time and the first node location of the flower are straight related to each other. Over 20 loci connected to flowering time and inflorescence development have been identified in pea. A detailed comprehension of flowering mechanisms is the substance of future improvements for genetic sequence-based selection and target manipulation of genes. The aim of this review is to summarize the present knowledge of flowering time regulation in the pea.
