Pedigree-based prediction models with genotype × environment interaction in multi-environment trials of CIMMYT wheat
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2017)
Genotype × environment (G × E) interaction can be studied through multienvironment trials used to select wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) lines. We used spring wheat yield data from 136 international environments to evaluate ...
Strategic crossing of biomass and harvest index—source and sink—achieves genetic gains in wheat
To accelerate genetic gains in breeding, physiological trait (PT) characterization of candidate parents can help make more strategic crosses, increasing the probability of accumulating favorable alleles compared to crossing ...
Genome-wide association study for adaptation to agronomic plant density: a component of high yield potential in spring wheat
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2015)
Previous research has shown that progress in genetic yield potential is associated with adaptation to agronomic planting density, though its genetic basis has not been addressed before. In the current study, a wheat (Triticum ...
Improving crop adaptation to climate change through strategic crossing of stress adaptive traits
Crossing programs based on phenomics have resulted in a new generation of drought adapted wheat lines based on strategic crossing of complementary physiological traits (PT) that have been included in CIMMYT's international ...

Performance of spring wheat derived from physiological strategic crossing under Mexican growing environments
(CGIAR; SADER; MasAgro; INIFAP; CIMMYT, 2019)
Spectral reflectance indices as proxies for yield potential and heat stress tolerance in spring wheat: heritability estimates and marker-trait associations
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
The application of spectral reflectance indices (SRIs) as proxies to screen for yield potential (YP) and heat stress (HS) is emerging in crop breeding programs. Thus, a comparison of SRIs and their associations with grain ...
Increasing genetic gains in wheat through physiological genetics and breeding
In order to meet future wheat demand it is necessary to increase yield potential and develop stress adapted genotypes. To do so, research and breeding is conducted at CIMMYT through the International Wheat Yield Partnership ...
