From crosses between diploid and autotetraploid cytotypes of Hordeum vulgare L. (cultivated barley) and H. bulbosum L. (bulbous barley grass) diploid, triploid and tetraploid interspecific hybrids were produced. Both directly and after vegetative segregation crosses in either direction also gave rise to haploids and dihaploids resembling H. vulgare. The use of embryo culture was necessary. Plant morphology of the hybrids was much like that of H. bulbosum, although the hybrid plants were less… CONTINUE READING
