Evaluation of a tiller inhibition (tin) gene in wheat

Duggan, Brian Leo

Description

Reduced tillering cereals have been proposed as being advantageous under terminal drought conditions through their presumed reduction in leaf area and increased partitioning of assimilate towards fertile stems. The reduced leaf area should reduce preanthesis transpiration and conserve soil water for grain filling while the partitioning of a greater proportion of biomass into fertile stems should subsequently result in more efficient partitioning of assimilate towards grain. The tiller...[Show more]
