Dark induced senescence as a tool in breeding wheat for optimum senescence pattern

Abstract

Senescence can influence: (1) leaf area duration, (2) area of transpiringtissue and (3) translocation of nutrients – mainly nitrogen to grain.Therefore, selection for optimum senescence pattern might be efficient forimproving performance of wheat in a given environment. This study wasconducted to investigate the feasibility of a seedling test for… (More)
