Sicilian wheat varieties

Sizilianische Weizensorten

Спцилианские сорта п шеницы

Summary

A brief historical background explains why Sicilian wheat germplasm has to be preserved. A catalogue of 32 cultivars collected throughout Sicily in 1973 is presented. Each cultivar is geographically and botanically identified. The presence of variability is discussed for several spike characters. The material is available for distribution.
