Abstract

In barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), the traits of the two-row spike, the high rate of plant tillering, and the high capacity for multiple plant regeneration (MPR) in a callus culture of immature embryos were shown to correlate. When a dihaploid line (DH) obtained from cv. Golden Promise (two-row spike, high number of thillers) was crossed to a DH line from cv. Bruce (six-row spike, low number of thillers), the two-row trait dominated the F1 generation, whereas, in F2, the segregation ratio was 3 : 1. From F3 progeny, we isolated the families comprising two-row homo- and heterozygotes and six-row homozygotes. In an F3 hybrid population, the two-row plants manifested higher tillering and MPR rates as compared to the six-row plants. The correlation between the traits of the two-row spike, the high tillering, and the high MPR capacity may depend on the pleiotropic V gene, which controls the general mechanisms of meristem functioning essential for the development of these three traits.
