Pollination, Emasculation and hybridization methods in wheat: A review

Author(s):
Kankala Prasad, Thatigutla Sai Kartheek Reddy and Aarti Sharma
Abstract:
Wheat is the most commonly adapted cereal and is produced all over the world. Wheat is utilised in a variety of applications, including food, feed, and industry. It is the world's second most important food crop, after rice, and feeds around one-third of the world's population. Wheat breeders have access to a huge gene pool with a high level of variety. Despite its greater performance, hybrid wheat is still only used in a small portion of commercial wheat production. With the recent development of practical hybrid seed production technologies, a shift from line to hybrid breeding in wheat appears to be feasible. We examine the implications for wheat breeding projects and offer suggestions for how quantitative genetic analysis can aid in the development of effective selection strategies.
