This publication, Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station Report 857, reports the results of the fifteenth international early maturing winter x spring wheat screening nursery. It is identified as volume 15(1). Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station Report 858 is a companion publication, designated as volume 15(2). It reports the results of the fifteenth...
Laboratory studies were conducted under different temperature and moisture regimes to evaluate the effects of temperature and moisture on stand establishment and seedling characteristics associated with stand establishment. Percent stand and days to 25% emergence were used as indexes of stand establishment. Seedling characteristics analyzed were: shoot length, coleoptile length,...
Parental and segregating populations derived from four winter x
spring wheat crosses were investigated to obtain information concerning
the inheritance and association of earliness, grain yield and yieldrelated
traits. Feasibility of selecting in early generations for these
characteristics was also evaluated. Four winter wheat cultivars
(Hyslop, Yamhill, Bezostaia 1, and...
This study was undertaken to standardize and evaluate the
tyrosinase test as a variety identification procedure for wheat. The
potential value of the tyrosinase test lies in its ability to quantify
the colored products, rather than relying on visual estimation as
in the phenol test.
The specific objectives of this...
A study of populations characteristics of T. turgidum ssp.
carthlicum and T. aestivum ssp. carthlicoides was completed using
numerical analysis. A sample of 74 accessions of ssp. carthlicum
and 20 of ssp. carthlicoides were scored for 46 characters. It was
established that three morphological distinguishable groups of ssp.
There is an increasing need for development of laboratory
identification procedures for purposes of plant variety protection, seed certification, quality control and consumer protection. In the past there were fewer commercial varieties and field
testing methods based on morphological differences were used satisfactorily. These tests require several months to complete...
The objective of this investigation was to evaluate the
possibility of developing high yielding wheat cultivars whose flour
would result in acceptable loaf volumes for non-traditional bread
wheat growing areas. Spring wheat germplasm employed included high
protein hexaploid derivatives from Triticum dicoccoides, and
selections from Argentina with good bread milling...
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,...
