Partitioning of assimilates to deeper roots is associated with cooler canopies and increased yield under drought in wheat
Dehydration avoidance through cooler canopy temperature (CT) has been shown to explain over 60% yield variation in a random progeny derived from a Seri/Babax cross. A near ?isomorphic? subset of Seri/Babax progeny and ...
Dissecting drought adaptation into its phenotypic and genetic components in wheat
Understanding of drought-adaptive traits has assisted wheat breeding and gene discovery at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT), accelerating genetic gains for yield in stressed environments. Recent ...
Drought adaptive traits and wide adaptation in elite lines derived from resynthesized hexaploid wheat
It has been shown previously that under drought, synthetic hexaploid derived wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) lines outperformed recurrent parents in part due to increased root mass at depth and better water extraction capacity. ...
The yield correlations of selectable physiological traits in a population of advanced spring wheat lines grown in warm and drought environments
Genetic progress in yield will increase if more traits conferring better agronomic and physiological performance are brought together in the same variety through full exploitation of genotyping and phenotyping techniques ...
Genetic yield gains and changes in associated traits of CIMMYT spring bread wheat in a 'Historic' set representing 30 years of breeding
The genetic yield progress of 26 spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) advanced lines released by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) in the period from 1977 to 2008 was evaluated in the selection ...
Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
