2nd International Triticeae Symposium
Richard R-C. Wang
The total of 865 accessions of Chinese bread wheat landraces (Triticum aestivum L.) has been investigated on their crossabilities with rye (Secale cereale L.), of which 121 land races showed similar crossability to Chinese Spring, 50 accessions had much higher crossability than Chinese Spring, and 693 varieties were non-crossable with rye or had lower crossability than Chinese Spring. The analysis on the geographical distribution indicated that the landraces with high crossability occurred in most parts of China. Some utilization of high crossability resources was also discussed.
