“· Selecting nonshattering genotypes or developing techniques to overcome shattering.”
“Because the gene for nonshattering is recessive, the selection of nonshattering types should be rapid, and true breeding should be immediate.”
“This species was domesticated in the distant past and is a largely nonshattering plant that retains its grain so people can harvest it.”
“The main difference between the two is that the cultivated type has much larger grains and is nonshattering (holds its seeds).”
“Partially domesticated in the distant past, this species is largely nonshattering - that is, it retains most of its grain so farmers can harvest them conveniently.”
“Jojoba is nonshattering, there is enough delay between the time the seeds mature and the time they drop to allow for harvesting the crop.”
“Artificial domestication experiments show that it is possible to breed nonshattering cereals quite quickly.”
“But Old World archeological data indicates that nonshattering cereals appeared only gradually, and typically only after the emergence of another domestic trait: larger grain size.”
“So the nonshattering trait might have lagged behind other domestic traits because it required an optimal combination of mutations that balanced seed retention for both harvesting and threshing.”
“Why would the nonshattering trait emerge later than larger grain size?”
