Wheat × Thinopyrum Hybrids

  • R. de V.Pienaar
Part of the Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry book series (AGRICULTURE, volume 13)


The perennial grasses of the Poaceae tribe Triticeae have broadened the genetic base of wheat (Triticum L.) since the first hybrids were made during the early 1930’s (Tsitsin 1962, 1975). Only a few species were involved in these early hybridization programs, but as advances in hybridization techniques (Kruse 1967, 1974), embryo rescue (Rommel 1958), chromosome doubling (Blakeslee and Avery 1937; Gavaudan and Gavaudan 1937), control of chromosome pairing (Riley and Chapman 1958; Wall et al. 1971; Riley 1974; Sears 1976), and chromosome manipulations (Morris and Sears 1967; Riley et al. 1968; Sears 1981,1983; Riley and Law 1984; Gale and Miller 1987; Knott 1987) were made, more species became utilized in the wide crosses.
