greater grain dormancy

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The results suggest that breeding programs could use CEC to characterise fixed lines for grain dormancy, perhaps during the off-season to complement field evaluation in the main growing season... The objective of the study was to investigate the ability to characterise and screen for grain dormancy using grain grown under CEC, utilising an extended photoperiod... The results were achieved within a relatively short time period (18 months from production of the dormant x non-dormant F1 crosses, screen segregating populations for grain dormancy and derive F4:5 lines)...
