Argentine wheat cultivars are assumed to be essentially vernalization insensitive or very slightly sensitive. However, there are only speculations on this lack of vernalization requirement and a greater unawareness on the variation in earliness per se. The aims of this research have been to determine the extent of variability in vernalization requirement and earliness per se, and how the variability in both traits was produced by breeding programs, through the release of wheat cultivars from… CONTINUE READING
