Direct seeded rice technology in Western indo-gangetic plains of India: CSISA experiences
(CSISA; IRRI; CIMMYT, 2012)
Performance of biofortified spring wheat genotypes in target environments for grain zinc and iron concentrations
Genetic biofortification to improve zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) concentrations in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) could reduce micronutrient malnutrition-related problems in the developing world. A breeding program on wheat ...
Comparative analyses of spot blotch and tan spot epidemics on wheat under optimum and late sowing period in South Asia
In South Asia, foliar blight of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a disease complex caused by Cochliobolus sativus (the spot blotch pathogen) and Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (the tan spot pathogen) which can reduce yields ...
Molecular genetic diversity analysis in emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccon Schrank) from India
Emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccon Schrank) is still largely cultivated in India, and highly appreciated for the preparation of traditional dishes. Moreover, its nutritional characteristics could justify a development of its ...
