Abstract:Twelve F1 wheat hybrids were evaluated under infestation hy Cephus cinctusNorton for plant and quality characteristics. Hybrid plants always had stern-solidness values intermediate between those of the 2 parents, and only where both parents were solid was sawfly culting satisfaetorily controlled in F1 plants. These data suggest that if hybrid wheat is to be resistant in wheat stem sawfly-infested areas, both parents must carry a solid stem.
Grain protein and flour absorption values of hybrids were generally low compared with the 2 parents, suggesting that heterosis is not operating for these 2 factors.
