Screening of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell.) genotypes under heat stress environment

Published on

Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell.) alone
accounts for about 34 per cent of the total food grain
production and will continue to play a crucial role in the
food security of the country. Breeding of heat stress
tolerance forms an integral component of wheat
breeding programmes at both national and international
level. Thermo tolerance in wheat cultivars requires
understanding of the physiological responses of wheat
crop to heat stress, which will help in identifying traits,
to be used as selection criteria. The present study was
carried out to understand the effect on morphophysiological traits under high temperature conditions
and identification of tolerant genotypes.
