Flour yield QTLs in three Australian doubled haploid wheat populations

Lehmensiek, A. and Eckermann, P. J. and Verbyla, A. P. and Appels, R. and Sutherland, M. W. and Martin, D. and Daggard, G. E. (2006) Flour yield QTLs in three Australian doubled haploid wheat populations. Australian Journal of Agricultural Research, 57 (10). pp. 1115-1122. ISSN 0004-9409


Flour yield quantitative trait loci (QTLs) were identified in 3 Australian doubled haploid populations, Sunco x Tasman, CD87 x Katepwa, and Cranbrook x Halberd. Trial data from 3 to 4 sites or years were available for each population. QTLs were identified on chromosomes 2BS, 4B, 5AL, and 6BL in the Sunco x Tasman population, on chromosomes 4B, 5AS, and 6DL in the CD87 x Katepwa population, and on chromosomes 4DS, 5DS and 7AS in the Cranbrook x Halbred population. In the Sunco x Tasman cross the highest genetic variance was detected with the QTL on chromosome 2B (31.3%), in the CD87 x Katepwa cross with the QTL on chromosome 4B (23.8%), and in the Crnabrook x Halbred cross with the QTL on chromosome 5D (18%). Only one QTL occurred in a similar location in more than one population, indicating the complexity of the flour yield character across different backgrounds.
