‘Tenmarq,’ ‘Comanche,’ and ‘Cheyenne’ each were crossed to ‘Chiefkan’ and the progeny backcrossed to each parent cultivar 10 times. The material studied was bulked awned and awnleted selections derived from each generation. Comparisons were made between awnleted and bearded lines for each backcross series and set of random lines for flour yield, flour protein, and mixogram mixing time. An association between awnleted and high flour yield was observed in the Tenmarq ✕ Chiefkan backcross series. Differences were noted in number of backcrosses necessary to recover the mixogram curve type of the recurrent parent.
