Inheritance of Rht8 dwarfing gene in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)



Inheritance of Rht8 dwarfing gene in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)



Indian Journal of Genetics and Plant Breeding 55(1): 36-40



Hybrids from crosses between dwarf Chinese Chuan Mai 18 with the Rht8 dwarfing gene and 10 tall Indian cultivars were compared for plant height, grain yield and 1000-grain weight in Himachal Pradesh. There was significant variability among parental, F1 and F2 populations. Plant height was intermediate between the parents, close to the midparental value in F1 plants, except for hybrid NP875 x CM18 which was near to the dwarf parent.
