Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2012)
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
Physiological breeding I: interdisciplinary approaches to improve crop adaptation
This book addresses very well the current serious challenge facing agricultural research where crop improvement is required to address two hard tasks: (1) a greater rate of increase in yield potenti al as compared with ...
Physiological breeding II: a field guide to wheat phenotyping
This manual describes the use of diverse phenotyping techniques for applied crop research, with an emphasis on the methods commonly used at the Internati onal Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT). The manual provides ...
