Molecular genetic diversity analysis in emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccon Schrank) from India
Emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccon Schrank) is still largely cultivated in India, and highly appreciated for the preparation of traditional dishes. Moreover, its nutritional characteristics could justify a development of its ...
Assessing the potential of labelling schemes for in situ landrace conservation: an example from India
This paper addresses the potential of in situ crop landrace conservation, employing market-based instruments, which pre-requires that (1) consumers hold positive use-value for the landrace attribute and (2) their willingness ...
The contribution of genetic resources and diversity to wheat productivity: A case from the Punjab of Pakistan
This study makes use of data on wheat production in the Punjab of Pakistan from 1979 to 1985 to 1) examine patterns of varietal diversity in farmers' fields both at the regional and district levels and 2) identify how and ...
Cotton varietal adoption and yields in the irrigated Punjab: Results from 1986-1988

Wheat rusts and the costs of genetic diversity in the Punjab of Pakistan
The theory of impure public goods is used to demonstrate why farmers may nor grow wheat cultivars with the socially desirable level of rust resistance. First, they may grow cultivars that are high yielding though susceptible ...
Comparison of the performance of best linear unbiased estimation and best linear unbiased prediction of genotype effects from zoned Indian maize data
The maize (Zea mays L.) growing area in India is divided into five zones for cultivar testing. During triannual testing of genotypes in official trials within the All-India Coordinated Maize Improvement Program (AICMIP), ...
