Association between development of the main morphological characters and yield in wheat in relation to breeding

Association between development of the main morphological characters and yield in wheat in relation to breeding

Genetika i Selektsiya 21(3): 269-275

In a 3-year study of the correlations between grain yield/unit area and 4 yield components in 8 varieties, 3 main characters were found to determine yield, viz. number of productive tillers/unit area, number of grains/ear and 1000-grain weight. In each variety the characters had a particular and different importance.
