INHERITANCE OF Rht 8 DWARFING GENE IN WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM L.)

Published on

The inheritance of Rht 8 dwarfing gene was studied using a Chinese source (cv. Chuan Mai
18) as dwarf and 10 tall indigenous wheat cultivars. The study revealed that dwarfism
caused by Rht 8 source is partially dominant. The crosses of this genotype with the tall
parents like C 306, Hybrid 65, K 68, NP 824 and NP 846 can give desirable genotypes.
