Association of water spectral indices with plant and soil water relations in contrasting wheat genotypes
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2010)
Spectral reflectance indices can be used to estimate the water status of plants in a rapid, non-destructive manner. Water spectral indices were measured on wheat under a range of water-deficit conditions in field-based ...
Evaluation of membrane thermostability and canopy temperature depression as screening traits for heat tolerance in wheat
The production of wheat germplasm with resistance to high temperature increases in importance with world wheat demand. Temperatures considered above optimal for wheat growth and development of presently grown varieties are ...
Adaptation of wheat to the canopy environment: physiological evidence that selection for vigor or random selection may reduce the frequency of high-yielding genotypes
Increasing the potential yield of wheat is a major thrust of CIMMYT's Wheat Program. Farmer's wheat yields are linearly related to the yield potential of new varieties. At the same time, breeders should ideally be able to ...
