Influence of variety, seed position and seed source on screening for coleoptile length in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)


The short coleoptiles of Rht-B1b and Rht-D1b semidwarf wheats can contribute to poor seedling establishment when sowing seed at depth orinto stubble. Alternative dwarfing genes are available to reduce plant height but which allow selection for increased coleoptile length. Response to selection for genes conferring greater coleoptile length requires that… (More)
