Effect of ppd-a1 and ppd-b1 allelic variants on grain number and thousand kernel weight of durum wheat and their impact on final grain yield
(Frontiers Media, 2018)
The main yield components in durum wheat are grain number per unit area (GN) and thousand kernel weight (TKW), both of which are affected by environmental conditions. The most critical developmental stage for their ...
Effect of Ppd-1 photoperiod sensitivity genes on dry matter production and allocation in durum wheat
Understanding the effect of genetic factors controlling flowering time is essential to fine-tune phenological development and to maximize yield. Thirty-four spring durum wheat genotypes classified in five allelic combinations ...
Characterization and mapping of leaf rust resistance in four durum wheat cultivars
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Widening the genetic basis of leaf rust resistance is a primary objective of the global durum wheat breeding effort at the International Wheat and Maize Improvement Center (CIMMYT). Breeding programs in North America are ...
Changes in durum wheat root and aerial biomass caused by the introduction of the Rht-B1b dwarfing allele and their effects on yield formation
(Springer Verlag, 2016)
Aims This study aimed to quantify the changes in root and aerial biomass of durum wheat brought about by the introduction of the Rht-B1b dwarfing allele and their effects on yield formation. Methods A historical series ...
Effect of Ppd-1 genes on durum wheat flowering time and grain filling duration in a wide range of latitudes
(Cambridge University Press, 2016)
Understanding the effect of genetic factors controlling flowering time is essential to fine-tune crop development to each target environment and to maximize yield. A set of 35 durum wheat genotypes of spring growth-habit ...
