Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
zeta)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme for carotenoid biosynthesis, demonstrating high association with the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat grain. Cloning ZDS gene and developing functional markers are important ...
Simulating the influence of vernalization, photoperiod and optimum temperature on wheat developmental rates
Background and Aims: Accurately representing development is essential for applying crop simulations to investigate the effects of climate, genotypes or crop management. Development in wheat (Triticum aestivum, T. durum) ...
Rust diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
Roelfs, A.P., R.P. Singh, and E.E. Saari. 1992. Rust Diseases of Wheat: Concepts and methods of disease management. Mexico, D.F.: CIMMYT. 81 pages. The rust diseases of wheat are among the most studied of the plant ...
Identification of QTLs for stay green trait in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the 'Chirya 3' x 'Sonalika' population
Stay green or delayed senescence is considered to play a crucial role in grain development in wheat when assimilates are limited.Weidentified three QTLs for stay green on the chromosomes 1AS, 3BS and 7DS using a recombinant ...
Bread wheat, durum wheat, and synthetic hexaploid wheat in saline and non-saline soils
Genetic improvement of crops for salt tolerance will become ever more important as it becomes necessary to cultivate marginal soils. The work reported here evaluated the intra- and interspecific variability in yield response ...
Boron deficiency in wheat
