Unlocking the genetic diversity of Creole wheats
(Nuture Publishing Group, 2016)
Climate change and slow yield gains pose a major threat to global wheat production. Underutilized genetic resources including landraces and wild relatives are key elements for developing high-yielding and climate-resilient ...
Crops that feed the world 10. Past successes and future challenges to the role played by wheat in global food security
(Springer Verlag, 2013)
Wheat is fundamental to human civilization and has played an outstanding role in feeding a hungry world and improving global food security. The crop contributes about 20 % of the total dietary calories and proteins worldwide. ...
Overview on crop genetic engineering for drought-prone environments
(Academic Journals, 2007)
The use of water in farming, numbers and problems with draught and water efficiency.
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 ...
An integrated approach to maintaining cereal productivity under climate change
Wheat, rice, maize, pearl millet, and sorghum provide over half of the world's food calories. To maintain global food security, with the added challenge of climate change, there is an increasing need to exploit existing ...
