Gene action for leaf conductance in three wheat crosses
Selection for altered stomatal conductance has potential to improve wheat grain yields in dry and well-watered environments. Yet the slow speed with which conductance is typically measured has limited studies reporting genetic parameters for leaf conductance. A viscous air-flow porometer that measures resistance to mass flow through a leaf was used to provide rapid estimates of leaf conductance. These estimates were obtained prior to anthesis on irrigated plants representing different...[Show more]
