Induced mutations in Iraqi bread wheat cv. Saber Beg

Abstract

''Saber Beg'', is a local wheat cultivar important in the semi-arid zone of Iraq where the rainfall is less than 450 mm per year. This cultivar has a good baking quality, but is of low productivity, high susceptibility to common bunt (Tilletia spp.) and to leaf rust (Puccinia recondita Rob. ex Desm.), but only in the rainy season. A mutation breeding programme using gamma irradiation has been started in 1978 to improve this cultivar. Seeds of all main tillers from M{sub 1} plants were harvested and artificially inoculated with teliospores of Tilletia spp. All the seeds from healthy M{sub 2} plants were inoculated again and sown in the same area. Out of 22920 M{sub 3} plants, 244 resistant ones were selected. During subsequent screening for 4 generations, however, only 3 mutants were confirmed.
