Sorry, no etymologies found.
In 1954, Arpad Kiss opened the way to secondary triticales by crossing octoploids with hexaploids.
(that is, hexaploids) are made from durum wheats and lack the D-genome chromosomes that are responsible for the breadmaking quality in bread wheats
Well, if they’re triploids then the production of hexaploids could lead to sexually fertile individuals.
