|Abstract||Spelt selection and breeding took place concurrently to soft wheat in different part of the world European countries where spelt is most cultivated are also the ones that were most involved in historical spelt selection and breeding Spelt improvement started in the early 1900 ’s with the selection of plants within local landraces This resulted in the selection of varieties such as Oberkulmer Rotkorn in Switzerland, Steiners Roter Tiroler in Austria, Lignée 24 in Belgium and Baulander Spelz in Germany Crosses were then made between spelt varieties to combine specific characters such as for Ostro, Oberkulmer Rotkorn x Steiner Roter Tiroler Crosses between spelt and wheat can occurred either naturally or artificially, although this technique was massively used in breeding programs to improve spelt agronomical and technological aptitudes The first hybrid varieties were released in the early 1960 ’s (e g Ardenne in 1965 Varieties like Ardenne Lueg and Hubel were obtained from a single cross between a wheat and a spelt parent, whereas varieties like Rouquin Albin and Franckenkorn originate from more elaborate crossings and back crossings strategies Most modern spelt varieties, such as Cosmos, Sérinité Badenkrone or Zollernspeltz now possess some of the wheat genome.|
