Abstract:

The present study data indicate that wheat trichomes are glandular trichomes. The frequency and development of these trichomes was affected by irradiance. The density of trichomes was negatively correlated with number of phenolic compounds in wheats. Branched chain amino acid metabolism (Valine), long chain alkanes, alkenes and fatty acid metabolism are cultivar specific in wheat. Differential responses for phenol, lignans, terpene and sesquiterpenes are due to the difference in metabolic strategies of drought sensitive and drought tolerant cultivars under favourable and unfavourable growth conditions. Wax morphology was similar in both wheats. Water stress and unfavourable growth conditions induced wax formation in the contrasting wheats.
