Senescence is a genetically programmed and environmentally influenced process resulting in the destruction of chlorophyll and remobilization of nutrients to younger or reproductive parts of plants. Delayed senescence, or stay-green, contributes to a long grain-filling period and stable yield under stress. To model senescence and identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for the trait, a population of recombinant inbred lines (RIL) from a cross between winter wheat cultivars, ‘Ventnor’ and ‘Karl 92… CONTINUE READING
