Seedling and slow rusting resistances to leaf rust in CIMMYT wheat lines
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
CIMMYT wheat has played an important role in wheat breeding in China. Identification of leaf rust resistance genes in CIMMYT wheat is important for developing wheat cultivars with resistance to leaf rust in China. A total ...
QTL mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in bread wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2006)
Powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is a major wheat disease in China. Use of adult-plant resistance is an effective method to develop wheat cultivars with durable resistance to powdery mildew. In ...
Optimal search in ex situ collections of wheat genetic resources
This paper develops a theoretical model for analyzing gene bank management decisions regarding the search for traits of economic value in ex situ collections of wheat. The model is applied to data on the probability of ...
Bunt and smut diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
Five bunt and smut diseases are regularly associated with wheat ( Triticum spp.). These are: common bunt (Tilletia spp.), dwarf bunt (T. controversa), Karnal bunt (T. indica), loose smut (Ustilago tritici), and flag smut ...
Guide to the CIMMYT Wheat Crop Protection Subprogram
This wheat special report provides an introduction to the CIMMYT Wheat Program's Crop Protection Subprogram. It is designed to help acquaint donors, visiting scientists, and other interested persons with the Subprogram's ...
1995/96 World wheat facts and trends: understanding global trends in the use of wheat diversity and international flows of wheat genetic resources
This document describes wheat's origins and the flows of germplasm between various regions of the world. It summarizes some of the tools biological and social scientists use to measure genetic diversity. It examines patterns ...
The bacterial diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
The most common bacterial pathogens that attack wheat are grouped under the names Xanthomonas translucens and Pseudomonas syringae. Pathovars (bacterial strains pathogenic to a specific host or hosts) included in X. ...
Quantitative trait loci in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) associated with resistance to stripe rust
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
Stripe rust is an important wheat disease worldwide and resistance to stripe rust is often not controlled by race-specific resistance genes. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting quantitative resistance to ...
Proceedings of the Warren E. Kronstad Symposium
On 15-17 of March 2001, CIMMYT held a special symposium in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, Mexico, in memory of Dr. Warren E. Kronstad, Distinguished Professor at Oregon State University, who died on 21 May 2000, after a two-year ...
