Practical guide to the identification of selected diseases of wheat and Barley
Selecting disease resistant germplasm is an essential component of breeding programs–in this case, wheat and barley programs. To achieve its objectives, the CIMMYT wheat program sistematically and consistently causes ...
Septoria and stagonospora diseases of cereals: a compilation of global research
In the mid-1970s the idea of holding a septoria workshop began to take hold among a small group of scientists in the USA. They were interested in exchanging ideas and finding ways to manage the septoria diseases that affect ...
Ensuring the use of sustainable crop management strategies by small wheat farmers in the 21st century
Virtually all current strategies to implement modern, sustainable crop management production practices involve conservation/zero tillage prior to seeding, some form of crop residue retention and management, fertilizer ...
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 ...
Helminthosporium blights of wheat: spot blotch and tan spot. Proceedings of an international workshop held at CIMMYT
(UCL; BADC; CIMMYT, 1998)
Over the last 30 ye~rs, in developing countries, the outstanding advances in wheat productivity attained by CIMMYT and its partners have contributed greatly to the well-being of millions of people. As growing numbers of ...
Fusarium head scab: global status and future prospects
Fusarium head scab of wheat was first reported in England around 1884; however, scab is generally more important in warm and humid areas. The various fusaria that cause scab are among the most variable and insidious fungi. ...
Farmer plant breeding from a biological perspective: implications for collaborative plant breeding
Plant breeding by research has become increasingly isolated from the plant breeding of farmers. Collaborative plant breeding (CPB) offers the possibility of bringing these two plant breeding traditions together to increase ...
International collaboration in crop improvement research: current status and future prospects
Investments over the past 35 years have created s system of national and international research centers that has revolutionized the supply of improved cereal varieties to developing country farmers. The newly created ...
Maize nutrition quality and plant tissue analysis laboratory: laboratory protocols 2008
Biochemical and chemical analysis of seeds and green plant tissues are essential in several breeding programs including nutritional and industrial enhancement, plant physiology, and plant pathology. The objective of CIMMYT’s ...
