Title: Genetics of boron tolerance in durum wheat / by Sansanee Jamjod.
Author: Jamjod, Sansanee
Issue Date: 1996
School/Discipline: Dept. of Plant Science
Abstract: Genetic studies of tolerance of durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var durum) to high concentrations of boron (B) were undertaken to identify genetic variation in response to B, the mode of gene action, number of genes and chromosomal locations of genes controlling tolerance. Results demonstrated that tolerance to B is under simple genetic control as observed in bread wheat. High levels of tolerance can be transferred into sensitive commercial varieties via backcrossing and selection can be performed during seedling growth at early generations.
