Production and evaluation of doubled haploid wheat lines
Languages of publication
F1, F2 populations as well as F3 and F4 wheat lines coming from more than 300 cross combinations have been used for androgenic wheat studies and more than 5000 haploid plants were produced. Promising doubled haploid lines were tested together with lines produced in the conventional way in yield trials. The two best doubled haploid lines overyielded the standard. On the basis of results related to the general combining ability it is advisible to cross parents with a good combining ability for characters such as high percentage of responding anthers and embryo/callus induction with parents indicating a good combining ability for green plant production. In this way ideal lines can be obtained for doubled haploid production.
