Attempt to improve some yield components and shattering resistance in wheat cv. 'Azadi' by induced mutations

Attempt to improve some yield components and shattering resistance in wheat cv. 'Azadi' by induced mutations

Mutation Breeding Newsletter (28): 3

Following 50-200 Gy gamma irradiation of grains, M2 variants with shattering resistance and increased numbers of fertile tillers or increased numbers of grains/spike were selected.
