Quantitative trait loci for resistance to spot blotch caused by Bipolaris sorokiniana in wheat (T.aestivum L.) lines 'Ning 8201' and 'Chirya 3'
Spot blotch caused by Bipolaris sorokiniana is a destructive disease of wheat in warm and humid wheat growing regions of the world. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for spot blotch resistance, two mapping populations ...
The relative importance of drought and other water-related constraints for major food crops in South Asian farming systems
Variation in water availability is a major source of risk for agricultural productivity and food security in South Asia. Three hundred and thirty expert informants were surveyed during 2008-09 to determine the relative ...
Performance of biofortified spring wheat genotypes in target environments for grain zinc and iron concentrations
Genetic biofortification to improve zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) concentrations in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) could reduce micronutrient malnutrition-related problems in the developing world. A breeding program on wheat ...
South Asia: an update India, Nepal and Bangladesh
Wheat grain yield and stability assessed through regional trials in the eastern Gangetic plains of South Asia
Improving the level and stability of grain yield is the primary objective of wheat breeding programs in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) of South Asia. A regional wheat trial, the Eastern Gangetic Plains Yield Trial ...
Genotype × environment interaction for zinc and iron concentration of wheat grain in eastern Gangetic plains of India
Zinc and iron are important micronutrients for human health for which widespread deficiency occurs in many regions of the world including South Asia. Breeding efforts for enriching wheat grains with more zinc and iron ...
Associations of environments in South Asia based on spot blotch disease of wheat caused by Cochliobolus sativus
Spot blotch is an important disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in South Asia. Division of test sites for this disease into homogenous subregions is expected to contribute to more efficient evaluation and better ...
