Evaluation of chemical compounds for induction of male sterility in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)


The short-list of eleven chemical hybridizing agents (CHAs) showing 98% or more induction of male sterility were identified following application at the pre-meiotic stage of wheat. Among ethyl oxanilates, 4-fluoro (CHA A1), 4-bromo (CHA A2), 4-trifluoromethyl (CHA A5), and 4-cyano (CHA A3) derivatives; and among pyridones, 4-chloro (CHA B3), 4-fluoro (CHA… (More)
