dc.description.abstractIn the Triticeae, hybridization of alien species with those of Triticum goes back to 1876 when Wilson consciously made the first wide hybrid involving wheat and rye. Rimpau in 1891 obtained seed on a presumably doubled sector in a wheat × rye hybrid and described 12 plants that must represent the first triticale. A more divergent hybrid (wheat × barley) was first reported by Farrer in 1904 that was considered rather improbable to be a true hybrid (Shepherd and Islam 1981).
