These novel wheats, when grown as spaced plants, have intermediate tillering capacity (up to 10 tillers), long spikes (30 cm) and high spike fertility (up to 200 grains per spike).
These restructured hexaploid wheat plant types were developed at CIMMYT during the 1990s, through a wide-crossing program involving Agropyron elongatum L., Triticum polonicum L. and Triticum aestivum L. var. Morocco wheat. CIMMYT has developed new advanced lines derived from crosses with these novel wheats which have more grains per spike compared to modern CIMMYT releases when grown as spaced plants.
