Overgrowth mutants of wheat and barley new sources of genetic variation for

Plain text source: 
We have now successfully applied this method to wheat, and have been successful in generating many new semi-dwarfing alleles in the same gene as the original Rht1... The studies now provide us with new sources of height variation in both barley and wheat, Australia?s two main cereal crops... A new method has been developed that allows the isolation of large numbers of mutants involving a gene that is important in regulating growth of wheat and barley...
