Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science, 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
Prospects and challenges of applied genomic selection-a new paradigm in breeding for grain yield in bread wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomic selection (GS) has been promising for increasing genetic gains in several species. Therefore, we evaluated the potential integration of GS for grain yield (GY) in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in CIMMYT's elite ...
Genetic yield gains in CIMMYT’s international elite Spring Wheat yield trials by modeling the Genotype X environment interaction
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
We calculated the annual genetic gains for grain yield (GY) of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) achieved over 8 yr of international Elite Spring Wheat Yield Trials (ESWYT), from 2006–2007 (27th ESWYT) to 2014–2015 (34th ESWYT). ...
Integrating genomic-enabled prediction and high-throughput phenotyping in breeding for climate-resilient bread wheat
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019)
Genomic selection and high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) are promising tools to accelerate breeding gains for high-yielding and climate-resilient wheat varieties. Hence, our objective was to evaluate them for predicting ...
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 ...
