Breeder demand for and utilisation of wheat genetic resources in Australia
As part of an ACIAR-funded project on genetic diversity in wheat in Australia and China, Australian wheat breeders were surveyed to assess the importance of genetic diversity to breeders. This paper reports the findings ...
Breeding of an early-flowering and drought-tolerant Lotus corniculatus L. variety for the high-rainfall zone of southern Australia
In the high-rainfall zone of Australia (HRZ, >600 mm), most pasture systems are dominated by perennial grasses with low levels of inter-dispersed legume. Numerous authors have shown that a legume content of 20?50% is ...
Identification of a new Polerovirus (family Luteoviridae) associated with cotton bunchy top disease in Australia
Cotton bunchy top (CBT) disease has caused significant yield losses in Australia and is now managed by control of its vector, the cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii). Its mode of transmission and similarities in symptoms to ...
Wheats for More Tropical Environments, A Proceedings of the International Symposium
This publication contains the proceedings of an international symposium on wheat production and research in tropical environments, held in Mexico on 24-28 September, 1984. In addition to the 43 contributed papers, it ...
Identification of novel quantitative trait loci for days to ear emergence and flag leaf glaucousness in a bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) population adapted to southern Australian conditions
In southern Australia, where the climate is predominantly Mediterranean, achieving the correct flowering time in bread wheat minimizes the impact of in-season cyclical and terminal drought. Flag leaf glaucousness has been ...
Spillover effects of international agricultural research: CIMMYT-based semi-dwarf wheats in Australia
The spillover effects of agricultural research are of interest because research-induced supply shifts in non-target regions can reduce the benefits for producers in the target regions. The introduction of semi-dwarfing ...
