Field of research: Plant breeding and seed production.

The aim of the work is to study the influence of maternal forms on the creation of selective material for the breeding of Lavandula angustifolia Mill. with advanced quantitative characteristics.

Objectives: The study of quantitative traits of productivity and the effect of heterosis in F1 hybrids in comparison with maternal forms. Determination of the influence of maternal forms on the heritability of quantitative characteristics of productivity, including the evaluation of the content and quality of essential oil in F1 hybrids. Creation of new variety- clones of lavender and hybrids with high heterosis effect.

Scientific novelty and originality of the idea: The influence of maternal forms on the quantitative characteristics of productivity, including the quality and content of essential oil in F1 hybrids of Lavandula angustifolia Mill. created by polycross hybridization, was confirmed. The positive effect of heterosis in F1 hybrids on the content of essential oil in comparison with maternal forms was revealed. A variable initial selective material with different genetic potential and geographic origin was created. Promising hybrids with a high heterosis effect in all quantitative characters in relation to maternal forms used in the creation of new, original variety-clones of lavender have been obtained.

The solution of an important scientific problem consists in the scientific substantiation of the use of maternal forms in the creation of a new variable breeding material of Lavandula angustifolia Mlll. Purposeful use of new genotypes with distinctive quantitative characteristics, which allowed creating original variety-clones of lavender.

The theoretical significance of the work: The influence of maternal forms on the value of quantitative traits and the effect of heterosis in polycross F1 hybrids of lavender has been confirmed. F1 hybrids with high, low and medium variability of quantitative traits in relation to the maternal form have been identified. The obtained data allowed selecting F1 hybrids with the high heterosis effect. The data presented in the work allow using the obtained breeding material in the creation of original varieties of lavender.

Practical value of the work: F1 hybrids of lavender with a high level of heritability and variability of quantitative traits were created. Selected F1 hybrids are used to create varieties with increased productivity. New created varieties of lavender Fr.5S-8-24 and Cr.13S-6-35 are tested in the Competitive Variety Test.

Implementation of scientific results: The obtaining planting material by the method of vegetative reproduction was introduced in the farm "Girlea Andrei Pavel", Rezina, and the firm SC Ecoland Production SRL, Botosani, Romania.
