Dynamics of floret development determining differences in spike fertility in an elite population of wheat
Further increases in wheat yield potential could be achieved through a better understanding of the dynamics of floret primordia generation/degeneration, a process which has received little attention. We quantified genotypic ...
Genetic dissection of grain size and grain number trade-offs in CIMMYT Wheat Germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Grain weight (GW) and number per unit area of land (GN) are the primary components of grain yield in wheat. In segregating populations both yield components often show a negative correlation among themselves. Here we use ...
Improving crop adaptation to climate change through strategic crossing of stress adaptive traits
Crossing programs based on phenomics have resulted in a new generation of drought adapted wheat lines based on strategic crossing of complementary physiological traits (PT) that have been included in CIMMYT's international ...
Genome-wide association study for adaptation to agronomic plant density: a component of high yield potential in spring wheat
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2015)
Previous research has shown that progress in genetic yield potential is associated with adaptation to agronomic planting density, though its genetic basis has not been addressed before. In the current study, a wheat (Triticum ...
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 ...
International TRIGO (Wheat) Yield Potential, Proceedings; Cd. Obregon, Sonora, Mexico; 24-26 Mar 2015
The abstracts herein are of presentations by crop experts for the “TRIGO (Wheat) Yield Potential Workshop”. Sponsored by SAGARPA’s international strategic component for increasing wheat performance, under the Sustainable ...
