Association mapping and nucleotide sequence variation in five drought tolerance candidate genes in spring wheat
Functional markers are needed for key genes involved in drought tolerance to improve selection for crop yield under moisture stress conditions. The objectives of this study were to (i) characterize five drought tolerance ...
Sustaining wheat yields with crop management in heat stressed environments: Effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers, mulching, and irrigation frequency
Wheat (Triticum aestivum (L.) emend. Thell) yield reduction associated with heat strees is a worldwide problem. The objectives of this research were to (i) to determine effects of major crop management factors on performance ...
Proceedings of the Workshop on Modeling Wheat Response to High Temperature; El Batan, Texcoco, Mexico; 19-21 Jun 2013
The abstracts here in are of presentations by experts participating in the workshop “Modeling Wheat Response to High Temperature”. Sponsored by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security ...
Crops that feed the world 10. Past successes and future challenges to the role played by wheat in global food security
Wheat is fundamental to human civilization and has played an outstanding role in feeding a hungry world and improving global food security. The crop contributes about 20 % of the total dietary calories and proteins worldwide. ...
Molecular mapping of high temperature tolerance in bread wheat adapted to the Eastern Gangetic Plain region of India
The inheritance of tolerance to high temperature stress during the grain filling period was investigated via a QTL analysis based on 138 doubled haploid progeny of a cross between the wheat cultivars Berkut and Krichauff. ...
Raising yield potential of wheat. II. Increasing photosynthetic capacity and efficiency
Past increases in yield potential of wheat have largely resulted from improvements in harvest index rather than increased biomass. Further large increases in harvest index are unlikely, but an opportunity exists for ...
