Achieving a good level of cross-fertilization between male and female parents in hybrid wheat production is a challenge. Despite the longstanding interest in hybrid wheat, there is little published data on floral traits which may enhance outcrossing. In this study genetic analysis of a lumber of floral traits was carried out and the effect on outcrossing ability of these traits assessed. The results will facilitate genetic improvements of traits which influence seed set in hybrid wheat production.
