Genotypic increases in coleoptile length improves wheat establishment, early vigour and grain yield with deep sowing

Rebetzke, G J; Richards, R A; Fettell, N A; Long, M; Condon, Anthony G; Forrester, Robert; Botwright, T L


Timely sowing is critical for achieving high grain yields in winter cereals. However, inadequate seed-zone moisture for germination commonly delays sowing to reduce biomass and subsequent yield in semi-arid environments. Sowing deep to reach soil moisture is often avoided by growers of Rht-B1b and Rht-D1b semi-dwarf wheat as these wheat show poor emergence when sown deep. Their reduced cell elongation associated with insensitivity to endogenous gibberellins, results in shorter coleoptiles and...[Show more]
