Assessing genetic variation for heat tolerance in synthetic wheat lines using phenotypic data and molecular markers

Abstract

High temperature is a major environmental stress factor limiting wheat productivity in India. Therefore, improvement for heat tolerance in wheat is an important breeding objective. A number of synthetic wheat hexaploids have shown resistance to major wheat diseases and tolerance to abiotic stresses such as drought, waterlogging and salinity. This study was… (More)
