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 ...
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 ...
Genetic analysis of vegetative ground cover rate in winter wheat using digital imaging
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2013)
Vegetative vigour is an important physiological trait and selection for greater seedling vigour is a goal of breeding programs, especially in rain-fed regions. This study aimed to identify the genetic variation of early ...
Variation in developmental patterns among elite wheat lines and relationships with yield, yield components and spike fertility
Developmental patterns strongly influence spike fertility and grain number, which are primarily determined during the stem elongation period (i.e. time between terminal spikelet phase and anthesis). It has been proposed ...
Modelling and genetic dissection of staygreen under heat stress
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 ...
Photosynthetic contribution of the ear to grain filling in wheat: a comparison of different methodologies for evaluation
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2016)
The culm (particularly the flag leaf) and the ear are believed to play a major role in providing assimilates for grain filling in wheat. However, the results obtained in the past varied depending on the methodology applied. ...
The international heat stress genotype experiment for modeling wheat response to heat: field experiments and AgMIP-Wheat multi-model simulations
(Wageningen University and Research, 2017)
The data set contains a portion of the International Heat Stress Genotype Experiment (IHSGE) data used in the AgMIP-Wheat project to analyze the uncertainty of 30 wheat crop models and quantify the impact of heat on global ...
Genetics of greenbug resistance in synthetic hexaploid wheat derived germplasm
The greenbug, Schizaphis graminum Rondani, significantly reduces wheat, Triticum aestivum L., grain yields if not controlled. Host plant resistance (HPR) can protect yield, is environmentally friendly and easy to use. Our ...
Foliar abscisic acid-to-ethylene accumulation and response regulate shoot growth sensitivity to mild drought in wheat
Although, plant hormones play an important role in adjusting growth in response to environmental perturbation, the relative contributions of abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene remain elusive. Using six spring wheat genotypes ...
Food security through translational biology between wheat and rice
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists, 2015)
Wheat and rice are the most important food crops in agriculture providing around 50% of all calories consumed in the human diet. While both are C3 species, the evolution and domestication of wheat and rice occurred in very ...
