  • In near-isogenic lines of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cv. Maris Huntsman) grown at 20° C under long days the reduced-height genes, Rht1 (semi-dwarf) and Rht3 (dwarf) reduced the rate of extension of leaf 2 by 12% and 52%, respectively, compared with corresponding rht (tall) lines. Lowering the growing temperature from 20° to 10° C reduced the rate of linear extension of leaf 2 by 2.5-fold (60% reduction) in the rht3 line but by only 1.6-fold (36% reduction) in the Rht3 line. For both… CONTINUE READING
