TAS, BIROL, 2012. Determination of some agronomic traits of winter wheat and spring wheat lines of different backcross generations growing in southern Marmara conditions. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 18: 36-41
This study was conducted on the testing fields of Uludag University Research and Application center. The lines belonging to the combinations of spring wheat and winter wheat examined during testing period were selected from backcross program conducted for supplying semi-tolerant to Puccinia spp. Some agronomic traits of lines such as plant height, spike length, spikelet per spike, seed number per spike, seed weight per spike in BC1, BC2 and BC3 generations were examined. As a result of testing, the plant height, spike length, spikelet per spike, seed number per spike and seed weight per spike increased in the proceeding backcross generations of winter wheat and spring wheat lines.
