Translational research for climate resilient, higher yielding crops
(Hapres; State Key Laboratory of Hybrid Rice, 2019)
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 ...
How can we improve crop genotypes to increase stress resilience and productivity in a future climate? A new crop screening method based on productivity and resistance to abiotic stress
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2016)
The need to accelerate the selection of crop genotypes that are both resistant to and productive under abiotic stress is enhanced by global warming and the increase in demand for food by a growing world population. In this ...
Breeder friendly phenotyping
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 ...
A direct comparison of remote sensing approaches for high-throughput phenotyping in plant breeding
Remote sensing (RS) of plant canopies permits non-intrusive, high-throughput monitoring of plant physiological characteristics. This study compared three RS approaches using a low flying UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), with ...
Evaluation and interpretation of interactions
(American Society of Agronomy, 2013)
Understanding the factors that define a given interaction is important in agricultural, agronomic, and plant breeding research, where agronomic treatments or genotypes are evaluated under several environmental conditions ...
Genome-wide comparative diversity uncovers multiple targets of selection for improvement in hexaploid wheat landraces and cultivars
(National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
Domesticated crops experience strong human-mediated selection aimed at developing high-yielding varieties adapted to local conditions. To detect regions of the wheat genome subject to selection during improvement, we ...
Phenotyping for breeding and physiological pre-breeding
