Abstract:

Allogamyin the range of 0-5 percent is reported in wheat which is beneficial for hybrid development. To know the floral traits as well as their heritability that influence allogamy, twenty eight genotypes of bread wheat comprising of both male fertile and male sterile lines were grown under timely sown conditions. Male sterile line D 2802-3A showed maximum glume opening angle (30.33°) and largest size of lodicules (3.10 mm). Minimum anther size was observed in WH 147 2A (0.94 mm2) along with shortest filament length (2.24 mm) and lowest anther extrusion (5.67 %). Anther in male sterile was shriveled and thinner. Pollen viability was nearer to zero in all male sterile lines. Further, all the traits under study showed very high heritability in broad sense. The highest heritability was observed for filament length which is followed by pollen viability. Genetic advance was observed maximum for pollen viability followed by anther extrusion.
