INHERITANCE OF FIELD REACTION TO BROWN RUST AND OTHER CHARACTERS IN INTER-VARIETAL CROSSES OF TRITICUM AESTIVUM L.

Published on

GENETICAL studies in wheat carried out at the Indian Agricultural Research Institute,
have elucidated the pattern of inheritance of the rust resistance carried by a number
of donor parents that are being used in the breeding programmes in India (Pal, 1951;
Sen and Joshi, 1955; Pal, Sikka and Rao, 1956; Sikka and Rao, 1957, 1958; Prasad
and Rao, 1960; Sikka
et al. 1960). The results of the studies of the inheritance of field
resistance'to brown rust of the varieties H 167 : 7-4-4-8 (developed at the LA.R.I.
from the cross Rionegro
X N. P. 760) Rionegro, Frondoso and Yaqui 53 in crosses
with the susceptible varieties, viz., N. P. 824, Ridley and N. P. 770 are presented
here. Certain other characters like grass-clumps, auricle colour, early growth-habit,
and glume colour were also studied.
