The physical-chemical analysis was performed by a set of fruit + cup collected with five (5) stages of development, corresponding to 15, 25, 35, 45 and 55 days after anthesis (DAA).
Days to spike emergence and anthesis were observed when 50% of the plants within a pot had spike and protrusion of anthers respectively.
The digenic non-allelic epistasis of additive x dominance and dominance x dominance were considered the major contributors in the inheritance of days to anthesis in crosses PS- Pop-1-1-4 x BD- Pop-2-1-2 and PS- Pop-29-2-1 x BD- Pop-2-1-2.
When comparing the cultivars, highest number of grains/spike were set by Bhittai, Hero and PBGST-4 in water stress at anthesis, respectively (Fig.
Approximately ten flowers from five plants of each sex were observed daily for four days each year to determine the time and duration of anthesis.
NUMBERS OF WEEVILS THAT EMERGED PER SPIKELET DURING THE PERIOD OF ANTHESIS
Water stress at anthesis stage reduces pollination and thus less number of grains per spike are formed which results in reduction of grain yield.
