The objectives of this study were two-fold. The first was to determine the relationship of cell length to internode length in the culms of winter wheat. The second was to ascertain the extent to which differential cell length accompanies varietal differences in plant height. Parenchyma and epidermal cell length relationships in the culm internodes of eight varieties of winter wheat were studied. The experimental materials were grown in the field and internodes from ten plants of each variety were sampled. The varieties were grown in the winter wheat nursery at the Agricultural Experiment Station, Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1954.
