Wheat breeding. VIII. Associations between grain yield and other agronomic characters in hybrid populations which involve various sources of dwarf stature



Wheat breeding. VIII. Associations between grain yield and other agronomic characters in hybrid populations which involve various sources of dwarf stature



Bragantia 43(2): 541-552



C3, of normal height (105 cm), was crossed with the semidwarf Siete Cerros and the dwarf varieties Tordo, Vican 71 and Olesen, and data on height, yield and some yield components, recorded in the parental varieties and F1, F2 and backcross progenies were analysed. The broad-sense heritability values for height and number of spikelets/ear were both over 0.5, while values for most of the characters investigated lay between 0.33 and 0.5. For yield, the value was 0.255.
