Study of the relationship between pre-harvest sprouting and grain color by quantitative trait loci analysis in a white×red grain bread-wheat cross

Abstract

In many wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) growing areas, pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) may cause important damage, and in particular, it has deleterious effects on bread-making quality. The relationship between PHS and grain color is well known and could be due either to the pleiotropic effect of genes controlling red-testa pigmentation (R) or to linkage between… (More)
