Multidimensional impact assessment of zero tillage technology on wheat productivity in Haryana
The farmer’s participatory approach proved to be accurate guide for zero tillage technology adoption by farmers within different districts not only in Haryana, India, but also in other major wheat producing states of the ...
Wheat molecular breeding laboratory
Acceptance and competitiveness of new improved wheat varieties by smallholder farmers
(Taylor and Francis, 2017)
We conducted this research because earlier research revealed that Pakistani farmers were growing 8–10-year-old wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties and hence not benefitting from the recent advances in wheat breeding. ...
Occurrence and population dynamics of the root lesion nematode Pratylenchus thornei (Sher and Allen) on wheat in Bolu, Turkey
Root lesion nematodes (RLNs) are an economically important pest due to their wide host range in the global cropping system. In Turkey, they have been found in every region and attack almost all crops (especially wheat), ...
A predetermined proportional gains eigen selection index method
The most general linear phenotypic selection index (PSI) is the predetermined proportional gains phenotypic selection index (PPG-PSI) that allows imposing restrictions on the trait expected genetic gain values to make some ...
Photosynthetic contribution of the ear to grain filling in wheat : a comparison of different methodologies for evaluation
(Oxford University Press, 2016)
The culm (particularly the flag leaf) and the ear are believed to play a major role in providing assimilates for grain filling in wheat. However, the results obtained in the past varied depending on the methodology applied. ...
Bio-energy, water-use efficiency and economics of maize-wheat-mungbean system under precision-conservation agriculture in semi-arid agro-ecosystem
The maize-wheat-mungbean (MWMb) cropping system is being advocated as an alternative to the traditional rice-based cropping systems of north-western Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) to address the issues of energy and nutritional ...
Zero-tillage is a proven technology for sustainable wheat intensification in the Eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains : what determines farmer awareness and adoption?
In India, there is increasing recognition among policy-makers of the largely untapped potential of the Eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) for meeting state- and national-level food needs. Zero-tillage (ZT) is a proven ...
Dwarfing genes Rht-B1b and Rht-D1b are associated with both type I FHB susceptibility and low anther extrusion in two bread wheat populations
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
It has been well documented that dwarfing genes Rht-B1b and Rht-D1b are associated with Type I susceptibility to Fusarium head blight (FHB) in wheat; but the underlying mechanism has not been well delineated. Anther extrusion ...
