Abstract

The relationship between Hagberg falling number and grain size was investigated in field-grown winter wheat varieties. Data was obtained for all varieties included in the UK Recommended List from 1997 to 2007. Overall, a negative association was found between thousand grain weight and Hagberg falling number. The negative association was detected between varieties in all years and within varieties in the majority of cases. Detailed Recommended List data from 2001 was used to examine variation in the relationship across 19 trial sites. Again, a negative association overall with both within and between variety associations was detected. However, there were also many cases where the association was not found. The association appears to be driven by both genetic and environmental factors; however, the association is not consistent enough to indicate a direct mechanistic link across all varieties.
