Mutagenic activity of cadmium chloride on the genetic variability of soft wheat

Zh. Zh. Chunetova, K. K. Shulembayeva, A. I. Zhussupova, B. Omarova


The action of the chemical compound – CdC12 on soft wheat varieties resulted in plant modifications on a number of qualitative and quantitative traits. Genetic analysis conducted on the basis of reciprocal crosses showed that the inheritance of altered traits in mutants is independent of the direction of crossing. Modification of habitus and phenotypes of mutant plants is accompanied by a violation of cell division in meiosis.
