Sample text

Good lodging resistance requires short, strong stems and a sturdy root system to anchor the plant in the soil. Lodging has been reduced in modern varieties through increased straw strength and reduced plant height. Semi-dwarf stature may be controlled by one or several genes. Selection for reduced height can have undesirable effects on yield and other characteristics, so again it is important to consider multiple traits when attempting to improve lodging resistance. Barley varieties should be bred to have the optimum heading date for their target environments.

The resulting plants are comparable to those that would be obtained after many generations of selfing from an F1 plant. Barley Hybrids Many sources of genetic male sterility have been identified in barley, and cytoplasmic male sterility and restorer systems are known in H. vulgare subsp. spontaneum. Gametocide treatments can also be used to induce male sterility. Although hybrid vigor may be advantageous for hybrid production, it may have undesirable consequences for malting quality. Uniform germination is essential for the malting process, but the F2 grain harvested from an F1 hybrid may be highly variable.

Chromosome 6 is longer than chromosome 7, and both have satellites (terminal sections of the chromosomes separated by a narrow constriction). Each of the chromosomes of barley can be distinguished with the use of Giemsa Cand N-stains which reveal distinct banding patterns during mitotic metaphase. Molecular Mapping in Barley Comparisons of genetic maps among the members of the grass family have shown that different species have many of the same genes and genetic markers, which often occur in a similar order along the chromosomes.
