Semi-dwarf cereal mutants and their use in cross-breeding. Proceedings of a research co-ordination meeting organized by the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Isotope and Radiation Applications of Atomic Energy for Food and Agricultural Development and held in Vienna, 2-6 March 1981. Jul 1982. p. 53-6483-919811Summary: The reduction of plant height in wheat and barley by cross-breeding in Italy started at the beginning of this century. In common wheat, the semi-dwarf character can be traced back to a Japanese variety Akakomugi used as a parent in cross-breeding. In durum wheat, semi-dwarf varieties have been developed by the introduction of the Norin 10 gene Rht1. Barley is the only cereal crop in which plant height and lodging resistance have still to be improved. Short-straw mutants have been induced by radiation treatments at Casaccia Nuclear Center in all the cereals mentioned above. In bread wheat, demand for short-straw types being lessCollection: AGRIS Collection
