Endosperm cell number in barley hordeum vulgare var distichum cultivar midas



Endosperm cell number in barley hordeum vulgare var distichum cultivar midas



Nature (London) 289(5796): 399-401



Grain weight is a major component of grain yield and it has been suggested that in wheat, final grain weight may be a function of endosperm cell number. If grain weight is to be increased by increasing the rate and/or duration of endosperm cell division, it is important to establish the stage of development at which maximum endosperm cell number is attained. The number of endosperm nuclei in developing caryopses of barley were estimated. Transverse sections of endosperms of different ages were examined. Cell division in barley endosperm continued until 28-30 days after anthesis.
