Recurrent Selection for Kernel Weight in Spring Wheat

  title={Recurrent Selection for Kernel Weight in Spring Wheat},
  author={Jochum J. Wiersma and Robert H. Busch and Gary G. Fulcher and Gary A. Hareland},
reported grain yield increased 3.9 and 7.4% cycle 1, respectively, over two cycles of selection in barley Increasing kernel weight has been proposed as a method to increase (Hordeum vulgare L.). Durum wheat (Triticum turflour extraction in spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Recurrent selection was initiated to increase kernel weight while maintaining gidum L. var. durum) grain yield improved 6.3% cycle 1 genetic variation for the unselected traits. Our objectives were to after two cycles of… CONTINUE READING
