We investigated the new inflorescence architectural character “three glumes” and a new status of ramification in tetraploid wheat. Using 9 tetraploid accessions with “turgidum type of branching”, the segregation of branched spike and the third glume indicated the complete linkage of genes for both phenotypes. The rachilla were elongated and bore florets at basal nodes while bearing spikelets at the apical nodes in T. durum Desf. TRI 9644 and T. turgidum L. PI 67339. The phenotype was different… CONTINUE READING
