Heat susceptibility of grain filling in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) linked with rapid chlorophyll loss during a 3-day heat treatment
Brief heat events (1–3 days, >30 °C) commonly reduce wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grain size and consequently yield. To identify mechanisms of tolerance to such short heat events, 36 wheat genotypes were treated under ...
A QTL on the short arm of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) chromosome 3B affects the stability of grain weight in plants exposed to a brief heat shock early in grain filling
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Molecular markers and knowledge of traits associated with heat tolerance are likely to provide breeders with a more efficient means of selecting wheat varieties able to maintain grain size after heat waves during ...
