Phenotyping for breeding and physiological pre-breeding
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 ...
A direct comparison of remote sensing approaches for high-throughput phenotyping in plant breeding
Remote sensing (RS) of plant canopies permits non-intrusive, high-throughput monitoring of plant physiological characteristics. This study compared three RS approaches using a low flying UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), with ...
Fitomejoramiento fisiológico II: una guía de campo para la caracterización fenotípica de trigo
Este manual describe el uso de diversas técnicas para la caracterización fenotípica en la investigación agrícola aplicada, con énfasis en métodos comúnmente usados en el Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maíz y Trigo ...
Canopy temperature and vegetation indices from high-throughput phenotyping improve accuracy of pedigree and genomic selection for grain yield in wheat
(Genetics Society of America, 2016)
Genomic selection can be applied prior to phenotyping, enabling shorter breeding cycles and greater rates of genetic gain relative to phenotypic selection. Traits measured using high-throughput phenotyping based on proximal ...
An integrated approach to maintaining cereal productivity under climate change
Wheat, rice, maize, pearl millet, and sorghum provide over half of the world's food calories. To maintain global food security, with the added challenge of climate change, there is an increasing need to exploit existing ...
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 ...
