Abstract


In Romania, during the 1980s, this species was studied in addition to other sweetener plants, such as Jerusalem artichoke, sweet sorghum, sweet iris, etc. After 1996, the researches were restarted intensively at Vegetable Research and Development Station Buzau by the Breeding and Biodiversity Conservation Laboratory. A valuable germplasm collection has been made for this species and the new genotypes will be proposed for approval.

Keywords
