Phenotyping approaches for physiological breeding and gene discovery in wheat
Conceptual models of drought-adaptive traits have been used in breeding to accumulate complementary physiological traits (PT) in selected progeny, resulting in distribution of advanced lines to rain-fed environments worldwide ...
Drought adaptive traits and wide adaptation in elite lines derived from resynthesized hexaploid wheat
It has been shown previously that under drought, synthetic hexaploid derived wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) lines outperformed recurrent parents in part due to increased root mass at depth and better water extraction capacity. ...
Detection of two major grain yield QTL in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under heat, drought and high yield potential environments
A large proportion of the worlds? wheat growing regions suffers water and/or heat stress at some stage during the crop growth cycle. With few exceptions, there has been no utilisation of managed environments to screen ...
Achieving yield gains in wheat
Wheat provides 20% of calories and protein consumed by humans. Recent genetic gains are <1% per annum (p.a.), insufficient to meet future demand. The Wheat Yield Consortium brings expertise in photosynthesis, crop adaptation ...
Physiological traits for improving heat tolerance in wheat
Wheat (Triticum aestivum) represents about 30% of the world?s cereal area, with over 220 million ha cultivated worldwide, often under abiotic stress. Wheat growth can be impaired by heat stress (HS) at any developmental ...
Application of physiology in wheat breeding
Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop of the wheat yield consortium
The abstracts herein are of presentations by crop experts for the workshop ?Wheat Yield consortium: Sponsored by SAGARPA?s international strategic component for increasing wheat performance, under the Sustainable Modernization ...
