Grain yield, adaptation and progress in breeding for early-maturing and heat-tolerant wheat lines in South Asia
Maintaining wheat productivity under the increasing temperatures in South Asia is a challenge. We focused on developing early maturing wheat lines as an adaptive mechanism in regions suffering from terminal heat stress and ...
Application of unmanned aerial systems for high throughput phenotyping of large wheat breeding nurseries
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Low cost unmanned aerial systems (UAS) have great potential for rapid proximal measurements of plants in agriculture. In the context of plant breeding and genetics, current approaches for phenotyping a large ...
Genomic selection for processing and end-use quality traits in the CIMMYT spring bread wheat breeding program
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars must possess suitable end-use quality for release and consumer acceptability. However, breeding for quality traits is often considered a secondary target relative to yield largely ...
Wheat quality improvement at CIMMYT and the use of genomic selection on it
The International Center for Maize and Wheat Improvement (CIMMYT) leads the Global Wheat Program, whose main objective is to increase the productivity of wheat cropping systems to reduce poverty in developing countries. ...
Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
Genomic prediction using phenotypes from pedigreed lines with no marker data
Until now, genomic prediction (GP) in plant breeding has only used information from individuals that have been genotyped. Information from nongenotyped relatives of genotyped individuals can also be used. Single-step GP ...
Harnessing diversity in wheat to enhance grain yield, climate resilience, disease and insect pest resistance and nutrition through conventional and modern breeding approaches
Current trends in population growth and consumption patterns continue to increase the demand for wheat, a key cereal for global food security. Further, multiple abiotic challenges due to climate change and evolving pathogen ...
Utilizing genomics and phenomics in CIMMYT wheat breeding
