The efficiency of mechanical mass selection in wheat was tested on genetically heterogeneous and homogeneous populations. The populations were mechanically stratified according to seed size and field-tested for 2 years. Shifts in means and reductions in variances for kernel weight, grain weight per ear, and grain yield per plot were observed in the mass-selected populations of heterogeneous bulks. No such shift in means or reduction in variance was observed in stratified homogeneous populations… CONTINUE READING
