A diallel cross consisting of ten parents was grown on the
Hyslop Agronomy Farm near Corvallis, Oregon, in order to obtain
estimates of the gene action contributing to yield and its components
in wheat. Gene action estimates were obtained by two methods of
diallel analysis and from narrow sense heritability...
A set of genes which show developmental and tissue
specificity are expressed late in embryo maturation during
grain formation in wheat (Triticum aestivum). Two members
of this maturation gene set (MGS) are Em and triticin, a 7S
globulin. Results presented here show that during
embryogenesis, the expression of Em mRNA...
The F₂ progeny from a diallel cross involving seven winter
wheat parents along with the parents were grown at the Hyslop
Agronomy Farm near Corvallis, Oregon to determine the influence
of three plant densities on gene action estimates for yield and its
primary components. The plant densities were designed to...
Parents and progeny populations from a cross of 'Stephens'x 'Tibet dwarf' were grown in a spaced-planted experiment to obtain information concerning the nature of inheritance and possible associations between grain yield and the components of yield. Agronomic traits measured on an individual plant basis were: heading date, days to maturity,...
Six wheat hybrids from two sets of parents and their respective
parents were grown at Hyslop Agronomy Farm near Corvallis, Oregon
in the year 1965-66. The object of the experiment was to evaluate the
influence of population densities and different planting patterns on
grain yield and factors which determine grain...
Physical properties of gluten and pigment content are of primary importance in determining quality in durum wheat (Triticum turqidum L. var. durum). The objective of this investigation was to evaluate the contribution of different -y-gliadin protein subunits in durum wheat pasta quality as measured by the sodium dodecyl sulphate microsedimentation...
