Early generation inheritance of malting quality characters in a barley cross

Early generation inheritance of malting quality characters in a barley cross

Crop Sci 8(4): 446-448

The inheritance of 2 qualitative and 2 quantitative characters was studied in the F3 and F4 generations of a cross between 2 varieties of barley (Hordeum vulgare L. emend. Lam.). The 2 qualitative traits, aleurone color and level of free beta-amylase, were each controlled by a single gene and the 2 genes were independent. The 2 quantitative characters, N content and total beta-amylase activity, had high heritabilities and were positively correlated. N content and total beta-amylase activity were both negatively correlated with level of free beta-amylase. Progress from selection for these characters in F3 could be expected, and genetic variability would remain in the selected lines.
