Agronomic evaluation of a tiller inhibition gene (tin) in wheat. II. Growth and partitioning of assimilate

Duggan, B; Richards, Robert I; van Herwaarden, A F

Description

Wheats with reduced tillering have been proposed for areas regularly subject to a terminal drought. A wheat plant with a genetic disposition to produce fewer stems is now possible through the introgression of a gene that inhibits tillering (tin). This study was conducted to determine the effect of the tin gene on the dynamics of tillering, light interception, and dry-matter production and partitioning in several different cultivars of wheat. Commercial cultivars and their near-isogenic pairs...[Show more]
