The effects of low/high light intensities and day length on ear emergence time in climatic chambers were studied in 12 common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars of different ecogeographical origin. Low light intensity (LI) affected the time to ear emergence in all the wheat cultivars of both the photoperiod sensitive and insensitive genotypes, increasing the number of days to ear emergence (DEE). Based on the increase in DEE, we chose samples with different light intensity responses among… CONTINUE READING
