Influence of sources of seed on varietal adoption behavior of wheat farmers in indo-gangetic plains of India
Seed is the most crucial input in the crop production cycle. Although new seed varieties are developed and released frequently, they often do not reach the farmers because of underdeveloped and inefficient seed delivery ...
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 ...
From genotype x environment interaction to gene x environment interaction
Historically in plant breeding a large number of statistical models has been developed and used for studying genotype x environment interaction. These models have helped plant breeders to assess the stability of economically ...
Genetic basis of 17 traits and viscosity parameters characterizing the eating and cooking quality of rice grain
A recombinant inbred line population derived from a cross between Zhenshan 97 and Delong 208 was used to analyze the genetic basis of the cooking and eating quality of rice as reflected by 17 traits (or parameters). These ...
Simulation approach and its applications in plant breeding
Conventional plant breeding largely depends on phenotypic selection and breeding experience, therefore breeding efficiency is low and predictions are inaccurate. Along with the fast development in molecular biology and ...
Visualisation of plastids in endosperm, pollen and roots of transgenic wheat expressing modified GFP fused to transit peptides from wheat SSU RubisCO, rice FtsZ and maize ferredoxin III proteins
The ability to target marker proteins to specific subcellular compartments is a powerful research tool to study the structure and development of organelles. Here transit sequences from nuclear-encoded, plastid proteins, ...
