Canopy temperature and vegetation indices from high-throughput phenotyping improve accuracy of pedigree and genomic selection for grain yield in wheat
(Genetics Society of America, 2017)
Genomic selection can be applied prior to phenotyping, enabling shorter breeding cycles and greater rates of genetic gain relative to phenotypic selection. Traits measured using high-throughput phenotyping based on proximal ...

Wheat quality improvement at CIMMYT
Pedigree-based prediction models with genotype × environment interaction in multi-environment trials of CIMMYT wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 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 ...
Modelling and genetic dissection of staygreen under heat stress
(Springer Verlag, 2016)
Plant chlorophyll retention—staygreen—is considered a valuable trait under heat stress. Five experiments with the Seri/Babax wheat mapping population were sown in Mexico under hot-irrigated environments. Normalized difference ...
Awns reduce grain number to increase grain size and harvestable yield in irrigated and rainfed spring wheat
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2016)
Genotypic variation in ear morphology is linked to differences in photosynthetic potential to influence grain yield in winter cereals. Awns contribute to photosynthesis, particularly under water-limited conditions when ...
Rubisco catalytic properties of wild and domesticated relatives provide scope for improving wheat photosynthesis
(Oxford University Press, 2016)
Rubisco is a major target for improving crop photosynthesis and yield, yet natural diversity in catalytic properties of this enzyme is poorly understood. Rubisco from 25 genotypes of the Triticeae tribe, including wild ...
