Overview on crop genetic engineering for drought-prone environments
(Academic Journals, 2007)
The use of water in farming, numbers and problems with draught and water efficiency.
Heat and drought adaptive QTL in a wheat population designed to minimize confounding agronomic effects
A restricted range in height and phenology of the elite Seri/Babax recombinant inbred line (RIL) population makes it ideal for physiological and genetic studies. Previous research has shown differential expression for yield ...
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 ...
Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2012)
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
