Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, February 25, 1975 Hay and seed contest in Calgary, Lethbridge Concluded from Page 11 News from Russia was received the other day which may relieve.some of the pressures on food production. The Russians have perfected a relatively new cereal breeding principle to develop a new form of tritikale, a hybridization to combine the hereditary properties of three plants soft wheat, durum wheat NEXT EDITION "THE CHINOOK' Will appear in The Lethbridge Herald TUESDAY, MARCH 4th Advertisers are reminded that the dead- line for adveTtisements is Wednesday, Feb. 26th. The Lethbridge Herald and rye. A tritikale is man made and can't be duplicated by nature. It works on the principle of chromosomes in each partner plant make up durum rye providing one tritikae and soft wheat rye providing another. The Russians claim their latest work produces more protein, indispensable amino acids, higher winter hardiness and complex resistance to virus and other diseases as well as lodging. Higher yields were also reported. In a discussion with plant breeder Ruby Larson of the Lethbridge Research Station, it was noted tritikale is not new. Different forms of the man made cereal have been around for about 30 years. But some of the earliest work on tritikale was done by scientists at the Univer- sity of Manitoba in Win- nipeg who recognized the potential for further work. One draw back ap- parently is the susceptibili- ty to Ergot which devalues the crop in general.
