Evaluation of membrane thermostability and canopy temperature depression as screening traits for heat tolerance in wheat
The production of wheat germplasm with resistance to high temperature increases in importance with world wheat demand. Temperatures considered above optimal for wheat growth and development of presently grown varieties are ...
Adaptation of wheat to the canopy environment: physiological evidence that selection for vigor or random selection may reduce the frequency of high-yielding genotypes
Increasing the potential yield of wheat is a major thrust of CIMMYT's Wheat Program. Farmer's wheat yields are linearly related to the yield potential of new varieties. At the same time, breeders should ideally be able to ...
Canopy temperatures of wheat: relationships with yield and potential as a technique for early generation selection
It is shown that, for bread wheat, air-canopy temperature difference correlates significantly with grain yield, especially when measurements are taken later in the day, We discuss the potential of this technique as an early ...
