USDA - Wheat's Flowering & Cold Tolerant Genes Linked

Researchers at the UC Davis, Ohio State University and in Hungary conclude that flowering and freezing tolerance are linked in wheat.

"This system enables wheat and other temperate grasses to respond differently to cool temperatures in the fall than they would to cool temperatures in the spring," said Jorge Dubcovsky, a professor in UC Davis' Department of Plant Sciences.
