Corn or wheat (Triticum L, 1753), also said tritico (usually indicates whether the plant is the kernels of the plant), it is a genus of the family Poaceae (or "grass"), the tribe Triticeae. It is an old crop corn, the area is located between the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Considering the variability of its morphological characteristics, we used molecular analysis as a necessary tool for the recognition of the Triticum aestivum. We investigate the genetic variability of the protein (Rht-Bl) gene nucleotide sequences in this species, focusing our attention on samples collected in the area of Benevento (Italy). Molecular analysis allowed us to identify a genetic difference between the most common Triticum eastivum and ancient Triticum aestivum from Benevento, called "Saragolletta del Sannio".
