CIMMYT's genetic progress in wheat grain quality under four nitrogen rates
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeders often try to simultaneously improve grain yield and bread-making quality. This study examined changes in CIMMYT's wheat germplasm with respect to grain protein concentration (GPC)- and ...
Interpreting genotype X environment interaction in wheat by partial least squares regression
The partial least squares (PLS) regression method relates genotype × environment interaction effects (GEI) as dependent variables (Y) to external environmental (or cultivar) variables as the explanatory variables (X) ...
Yield potential progress in short bread wheats in Northwest Mexico
Germplasm from the spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeding program at the International Center for Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT) has had a major impact on the yield of irrigated spring wheats in most developing ...
Genetic progress in wheat yield and nitrogen use efficiency under four nitrogen rates
The adaptation and performance of CIMMYT's bread wheat germplasm (Triticum aestivum L.) under conditions of low N fertility have been questioned because they were developed under medium-high levels of N fertility. The ...
Applications of raised-bed planting systems to wheat
