Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
zeta)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme for carotenoid biosynthesis, demonstrating high association with the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat grain. Cloning ZDS gene and developing functional markers are important ...
Performance of biofortified spring wheat genotypes in target environments for grain zinc and iron concentrations
Genetic biofortification to improve zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) concentrations in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) could reduce micronutrient malnutrition-related problems in the developing world. A breeding program on wheat ...
Variation of major mineral elements concentration and their relationships in grain of Chinese wheat
Investigation on concentration of mineral elements including micronutrients as Fe and Zn in wheat grains which are essential for human life is very important for human health. Method 240 cultivars and advanced lines, ...
Global Fusarium networking
Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) caused by several species of Fusarium fungi continues to be a major wheat disease worldwide, causing direct grain yield losses and heath concerns due to mycotoxins. Although chemical intervention ...
Simulating the influence of vernalization, photoperiod and optimum temperature on wheat developmental rates
Background and Aims: Accurately representing development is essential for applying crop simulations to investigate the effects of climate, genotypes or crop management. Development in wheat (Triticum aestivum, T. durum) ...
Solvent retention capacities as indirect selection criteria for sugar snap cookie quality in Chinese soft wheats
Development of soft wheat cultivars with high sugar snap cookie quality is one of the most important breeding objectives in south China. Lack of an efficient criterion for selection for soft wheat quality is the main reason ...
Boron deficiency in wheat
