Abstract

In order to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controlling grain yield, average grain weight and grain plumpness, the progeny of the mapping population VB9104 x Dash and their parents were grown at three locations (Esperance 2001, Kendenup 2001 and Kendenup 2002) in single replicate trials. QTLs for grain yield, average grain weight and grain plumpness were generally located on chromosome 5H and to a lesser extent on chromosome 2H. Numerous QTLs were common to several locations. The marker Bmag0337 on chromosome 5H was highly associated with grain yield and average grain weight. The positive alleles for grain weight and grain plumpness were from VB9104 and Dash, respectively.
