Lens interspecific

Common NameLens interspecific
AbbreviationLens interspecific

Germplasm denoted as Lens interspecific should be a direct cross between two different Lens species.

One replicate. Looking at domestication traits. Opportunistic phenotyping based on what they see.
One location (CSFL), 2 treatments (low red/far red ratio and high red/far red ratio) and 4 replicates within each treament for each of 20 genotypes.
This population between Eston (L. culinaris) and IG 72623 (L. odemensis) is being evaluated to investigate the genetic and phenotypic variability for agronomic and growth habit and to identify the molecular mechanisms underlying the quantitative variation for these traits in wild and cultivated lentils.
Lentil recombinant inbred lines (LR-86) derived from a cross between Lupa # 7 (L. culinaris) x BGE016880 (L. orientalis) were evaluated in five replications in 2016 in the field at the Crop Science Field Lab of the University of Saskatchewan. Days to flowering, days to maturity, plant height at maturity, shattering percentage, number of seeds per plant, and seed yield per plant were recorded. The population was genotyped and mapped using a genotyping-by-sequencing approach. Major QTLs for shattering resistance were identified on LGs 4 and 7. In 2017, the population was grown in two locations (Investigation field and Sutherland) in three replications to confirm the identified QTL for shattering resistance.
