Synopsis

Synopsis

Semidwarf selections averaged 5 to 9 inches shorter than standard varieties, depending on location of the planting. Yields and test weights were essentially equal, indicating that high yielding, short-straw spring wheats can be produced. The shortness of the semidwarfs is due chiefly to shorter peduncles but the other internodes also are shorter. Both types responded similarly to nitrogen fertilizer, but the standard varied more in plant height than the semidwarf.
