  • Abstract Spike grain number, a major component in the yield of wheat, is suspected of being determined by the sudden death of most of the initiated floret primordia, which occurs at around booting. By counting twice weekly the number of floret primordia in the middle and top spikelets, the onset time for the death of floret primordia ( T d ) was assessed in six genotypes of differing earliness and fertility subjected to three treatments that were applied during stem elongation. The variation in… CONTINUE READING
