The reduced height genes do not affect the root penetration ability in wheat

The reduced height genes do not affect the root penetration ability in wheat

Euphytica 141(1/2): 105-111

Root penetration (RP) ability into compacted soil is an important breeding target for drought avoidance by durum (Triticum turgidum L. var. durum and bread wheat (T. aestivum L.) in regions with compacted soils and water deficits. However, it is said generally that yield of the current cultivars introduced the reduced height gene (Rht-B1b or Rht-D1b) are more sensitive to drought stress than that of old landraces.
