Development and characterization of wheat mutants resistant to acetyl co-enzyme A carboxylase inhibitors
MetadataShow full item record
Weed management in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is currently limited when undesirable grass species are present due to limited options for herbicidal selectivity between the species. The incorporation of an acetyl co-enzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitor tolerance trait in wheat would allow growers to expand the arsenal and effectiveness available for managing troublesome grass species. To develop this new trait, ethyl methanesulfonate mutagenesis (EMS) was utilized to induce point mutations in the ACCase gene. Seeds mutagenized with 0.75% EMS for 2.5 hours were grown and seed was ...
