Breeding progress for yield in winter wheat genotypes targeted to irrigated environments of the CWANA region
The international winter wheat improvement program (IWWIP), an alliance between Turkey-CIMMYT-ICARDA, has distributed improved germplasm to different National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) partners through international ...
Analysis of genetic factors influencing the developmental rate of globally important CIMMYT wheat cultivars
The rate at which wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) reaches anthesis and other developmental stages depends largely on the variation of three major factors: vernalization (Vrn), photoperiod (Ppd), and earliness per se (Eps). ...
CIMMYT's approach to breeding for wide adaptation
The wheat area in developing countries, including China, is around 100 million ha. To address the needs of these very diverse wheat growing areas, CIMMYT has defined 12 wheat mega-environments (ME). A ME is defined as ...
New wheats for a secure, sustainable future
This paper reviews strategies used by CIMMYT and its partners to develop sustainable wheat production systems for favored and marginal areas. These strategies aim to achieve an optimal combination of the best genotypes ...
