РЕФЕРАТ (Abstract)

The invention consists of a method of planting seeds of plants selected for enhanced colony growth attributes in a hill plot seeding method to produce an enhanced commercial yield of cereal grain as well as a method of producing seeds selected for enhanced colony growth attributes.

ФОРМУЛА ИЗОБРЕТЕНИЯ (CLAIMS)

What is claimed is:

1. A method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced commercial colony growth performance, wherein said method comprises the following steps in a cycle: planting a plurality of seeds of a cereal grain in a seed planting site within a series of seed planting sites, wherein said series of seed planting comprises a hill plot planting design, and repeating said step to plant a plurality of seeds in each of said seed planting sites within said series of seed planting sites until a desired number of seed planting sites have been seeded; growing said plurality of seeds into individual plants within a colony of plants; selecting said individual plants for one or more desired traits in said series of seed planting sites, wherein one of said desired traits in said series of seed planting sites further comprises enhanced colony growth attributes; selecting said plants exhibiting one or more of said desired traits in said series of seed planting sites within said hill plot planting designs to produce seeds that produce offspring having seeds exhibiting one or more of said desired traits; harvesting said seeds from said offspring; wherein said cycle of said method is performed at least one time to generate seeds having enhanced colony growth attributes, and wherein said seeds having said enhanced colony growth attributes are used in a commercial farming system wherein said seeds are planted in a hill plot planting system.

2. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 1, wherein said cereal grain further comprises barley.

3. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 1, wherein said cereal grain further comprises wheat.

4. The method of claim 1 of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance, wherein said method further comprises harvesting seeds from said offspring exhibiting one or more of said desired traits; and using said seeds in a hill plot farming system.

5. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 1, wherein said method further comprises repeating said steps of said method for at least a total of two cycles.

6. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 1, wherein said method further comprises harvesting seeds from said plants of said colony following completion of selection cycles.

7. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 6, wherein: said method further comprises planting a plurality of said seeds from said plants of said colonies exhibiting said enhanced colony growth performance attributes; and wherein said seeds are planted in hill plot cultures for commercial cereal grain production.

8. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 7, wherein said plurality of said seeds comprises approximately from 3 to 30 seeds.

9. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 7, wherein said method further comprises planting said hill plot cultures in a plurality of longitudinal rows and a plurality of transverse rows, said plurality of transverse rows crossing said plurality of longitudinal rows.

10. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 9, wherein said plurality of said seeds comprises approximately from 3 to 30 seeds.

11. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 7, wherein said method further comprises planting said hill plot cultures in said plurality of transverse rows crossing said plurality of longitudinal rows, each of said hill plot cultures within said rows is planted approximately one foot away from any neighboring hill plot culture.

12. The method of genetically selecting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth attributes and planting said seeds of cereal grains for enhanced colony growth performance of claim 11, wherein said plurality of said seeds comprises approximately from 3 to 30 seeds.

13. A method of planting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced commercial yield, said method for planting seeds of cereal grains comprising: planting a plurality of seeds into a seed bed within a series of seed beds on a hill plot, wherein a plurality of seeds is planted into each seed bed, wherein said seeds planted into each of said seed beds grow into a colony of cereal grain plants, wherein said seeds of said method of planting seeds of cereal grains comprise seeds of plants that have been selected for enhanced colony growth attributes, wherein said seeds are planted in a commercial cereal grain production process, wherein said commercial grain production process comprises planting said seeds in a hill plot planting system.

14. The method of planting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced commercial yield of claim 13 wherein said plurality of seeds of said method of planting seeds of cereal grains comprises approximately from 3 to 30 seeds.

15. The method of planting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced commercial yield of claim 13 wherein said series of seed beds of said method of planting seeds of cereal grains further comprises a plurality of longitudinal seed beds and a plurality of transverse rows of seed beds, said plurality of transverse rows of seed beds crossing said plurality of longitudinal rows of seed beds.

16. The method of planting seeds of cereal grains for enhanced commercial yield of claim 15 wherein said plurality of seeds of said method of planting seeds of cereal grains comprises approximately 3 to 30 seeds.

17. A method of commercially growing cereal grains, wherein said method comprises the following steps: planting a plurality of seeds of a cereal grain in a seed planting site within a series of seed planting sites and repeating said step to plant a plurality of seeds in each of said seed planting sites within said series of seed planting sites until a desired number of seed planting sites have been seeded; growing said seeds into a plurality of plants; selecting said individual plants for one or more desired traits in said series of seed planting sites, wherein one of said desired traits in said series of seed planting sites further comprises enhanced colony growth attributes; selecting said plants exhibiting one or more of said desired traits in said series of seed planting sites within said hill plot planting designs to produce seeds that produce offspring having seeds exhibiting one or more of said desired traits; harvesting said seeds from said offspring, wherein said process is performed at least one time to produce the selected seeds; planting said selected seeds in a commercial cereal grain production process, wherein said commercial cereal grain production process comprises planting said seeds in a hill plot planting system; and harvesting plants grown from said selected seeds in said commercial cereal grain production process.
