Primary identification and evaluation of wheat germplasm from Generation Challenge Programme
An identification and evaluation for 1000-seed weight, grain number per ear, ear number per plant, plant height, plumpness of kernels and yield of 146 wheat germplasms from GCP projects were conducted. The results showed that: the tested varieties had a wealth of genetic diversity in yield, grain number per ears, ear number per plant and so on; there were different correlations in each trait; heading and maturity stages had effects to grain number per ear, yield and 1 000 seed weight. We had successfully selected 8 big ear fertility varieties, 8 big grain fertility varieties, 5 short stalk fertilities and 25 fine varieties of super traits and outstanding fertility.
