Study on potentials of triticale as an alternative of wheat in India
Suresh, Om Prakash Bishnoi, Rishi Kumar Behl and Renu Munjal
Triticale is the first man made cereal developed to combine yield potential of wheat with rye. In changing climatic conditions of North Western Plain Zone (NWPZ) of India triticale can be an alternative to wheat if certain shortcomings of this crop are corrected. In this study fourteen genotypes of wheat and triticale are evaluated for genetic variability. Significant variability was found for all the yield attributing traits among these genotypes. High heritability and genetic advance was also noticed for grain yield, biological yield and plant height. Comparison of triticale with wheat genotypes gave an idea that yield potential of triticale can be improved by modifying these genotypes for biological yield, plant height and grain yield itself.
