Effect of 1B-1R Chromosome Translocation on Milling and Quality Characteristics of Bread Wheats.

Backcross derivatives of three commercial Australian bread wheat varieties carrying the 1B/1R translocation were compared with their recurrent parents for a range of milling and quality characteristics. The 1B/1R translocation generally had no major deleterious effects on 1,000-grain weight, test weight, grain protein, flour protein, grain hardness, milling quality (flour yield and color) or farinograph water absorption. In the hard wheats the 1B/1R translocation did substantially and consistently reduce SDS- sedimentation volume and dough development time. There was also a tendency towards reduced extensigraph resistance and extensibility. However, for the latter characteristics the best 1B/1R derivatives were similar to the recurrent parents. In sharp contrast, in the soft wheat derivatives there was no evidence that the 1B/1R translocation significantly reduced SDS-sedimentation volume, dough-development time, or extensigraph resistance. In this case, however, dough extensibility was consistently reduced in the 1B/1R derivatives. The reasons for this contrast between the effects of the 1B/1R on hard and soft wheats is unknown and deserves further study.
