Summary: A comparison of wheat cultivars with respect to drought resistance. A trial with five wheat cultivars grown at two moisture levels (50 and 80% of field water capacity) was conducted in a glass house. Cultivar differences in dry matter accumulation were observed at the low moisture level, with Gamtoos having a higher leaf area and leaf mass at the flag-leaf stage and eventually a higher grain yield. During the flag-leaf stage, leaf water potential at the low moisture level for Gamtoos was lower than that of the other cultivars.
