Abstract

Only three generations were required for Anther Culture 28 (An.Cul.28) — a new disease-resistant and high-yielding variety of winter wheat — to be formed by anther culture. An.Cul.28 not only shows stability of hereditary features and no decrease of viability but also resistence to disease and lodging, good adaptiveness to natural conditions as well as high and stable yield in tests over some years. It was planted in a large area (over 20,000 ha).
