Abstract

Indian safflower varieties possess low oleic acid content (16-20%). Therefore, high oleic (>70%) safflower oil is imported from abroad to meet the domestic needs. ICAR-Indian Institute of Oilseeds Research developed India’s first high oleic safflower variety, ISF-1, which has been notified recently for all India cultivation. ISF-1 contains 76% oleic acid and 31% oil. It gives four-fold higher oleic acid yield (4.41 q/ha) than the leading variety, PBNS-12 (1.0 q/ha). Its performance with respect to oleic acid content and seed and oil yield in AICRP (Safflower) trials and in farmers’ fields across the country is presented in this paper.
