Carbohydrate levels among winter wheat cultivars varying in freezing tolerance and snow mold resistance during autumn and winter



Carbohydrate levels among winter wheat cultivars varying in freezing tolerance and snow mold resistance during autumn and winter



Physiologia Plantarum 103(1): 8-16



The LT50 values and soluble carbohydrate levels in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) crowns and leaves were monitored throughout autumn and winter in cultivars varying in freezing tolerance and snow mold resistance during 1993/1994 and 1994/1995 in the field at Sapporo, Japan. During the first stage of hardening, from sowing to mid-November, the pattern of accumulation of mono- and disaccharides was similar for all cultivars. During the second stage of cold hardening, from mid-November to mid-December, the greatest accumulation of mono- and disaccharides, without a corresponding increase in fructan, was observed among the freezing-tolerant cultivars; and levels of simple saccharides rapidly decreased under snow cover. Conversely, levels of mono- and disaccharides in snow mold-resistant cultivars were less than 70% of those in freezing-tolerant cultivars before snow cover and maintained low levels throughout winter, while polysaccharide levels in snow mold-resistant cultivars were about 120% of those in freezing-tolerant cultivars in December. Sugar metabolism during the winter was examined using 18 cultivars in 1994/1995. LT50 values were correlated to the greatest extent with total mono- and disaccharide and fructan content among wheat cultivars excluding snow mold-resistant cultivars in December. Snow mold-resistant cultivars tended to metabolize carbohydrates more slowly until the end of the snow cover period. This result suggested that the enzymatic metabolism of the synthesis of sugars and the conversion of fructan to cryoprotective sugars in response to low temperatures, especially subzero ones, might be different between the two contrasting types in resistance to winter stress.
