Abstract
An experiment was conducted to estimate the total sugars and starch contents in three tetraploid and three hexaploid wheat genotypes at different days after anthesis (DAA). The sugar content decreased continuously from 5 DAA till harvest whereas the starch content increased at the same time. The new plant type, DL 1226-2, recorded highest amount of sugars at 15 DAA and starch at harvest stage.
