Genetic characterization and mapping of the Rht-1 homoeologs and flanking sequences in wheat

Abstract

The introgression of Reduced height (Rht)-B1b and Rht-D1b into bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) varieties beginning in the 1960s led to improved lodging resistance and yield, providing a major contribution to the ‘green revolution’. Although wheat Rht-1 and surrounding sequence is available, the genetic composition of this region has not been examined in a… (More)
