Contribution of Individual Culms to Yield of Salt-Stressed Wheat


Grain yield in wheat (Triticum aestivum L. emend. Thell.) is highly dependent upon the number of spike-hearing tillers produced by each plant. Soil salinity can greatly decrease their number and productivity. Knowing the contribution of specific tillers is essential for breeding salt-tolerant genotypes and for developing wheat growth simulation models. Our… (More)
