Grain yield, adaptation and progress in breeding for early-maturing and heat-tolerant wheat lines in South Asia
Maintaining wheat productivity under the increasing temperatures in South Asia is a challenge. We focused on developing early maturing wheat lines as an adaptive mechanism in regions suffering from terminal heat stress and ...
Harnessing diversity in wheat to enhance grain yield, climate resilience, disease and insect pest resistance and nutrition through conventional and modern breeding approaches
Current trends in population growth and consumption patterns continue to increase the demand for wheat, a key cereal for global food security. Further, multiple abiotic challenges due to climate change and evolving pathogen ...
A singular value decomposition Bayesian multiple-trait and multiple-environment genomic model
(Springer Nature, 2019)
Today, breeders perform genomic-assisted breeding to improve more than one trait. However, frequently there are several traits under study at one time, and the implementation of current genomic multiple-trait and ...
Application of unmanned aerial systems for high throughput phenotyping of large wheat breeding nurseries
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Low cost unmanned aerial systems (UAS) have great potential for rapid proximal measurements of plants in agriculture. In the context of plant breeding and genetics, current approaches for phenotyping a large ...
Utilizing genomics and phenomics in CIMMYT wheat breeding
Regularized selection indices for breeding value prediction using hyper-spectral image data
(Nature Publishing Group, 2020)
Hyperspectral reflectance-derived relationship matrices for genomic prediction of grain yield in wheat
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
Hyperspectral reflectance phenotyping and genomic selection are two emerging technologies that have the potential to increase plant breeding efficiency by improving prediction accuracy for grain yield. Hyperspectral cameras ...
Validation of candidate gene-based markers and identification of novel loci for thousand-grain weight in spring bread wheat
Increased thousand-grain weight (TGW) is an important breeding target for indirectly improving grain yield (GY). Fourteen reported candidate genes known to enhance TGW were evaluated in two independent and existing datasets ...
