During the workshop “Modeling Temperature Response in Wheat and Maize,” held from 23 to 25 April 2001 at CIMMYT’s headquarters at El Batan, Mexico, participants examined various approaches for modeling temperature effects ...
Impacts of international research on intertemporal yield stability in wheat and maize: an economic assessment
Critics of modern maize and wheat varieties (MVs) have suggested that, in developing countries, yields of these varieties vary more from season to season than yields of farmers’ traditional varieties, thereby exposing ...
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 ...
Molecular approaches for the genetic improvement of cereals for stable production in water-limited environments
Drought is a major problem for the production of the world’s five principal cereals: maize, wheat, rice, pearl millet, and sorghum. Past and current breeding efforts have met the challenge posed by drought with some success. ...
In situ conservation of crops and their relatives: a review of current status and prospects for wheat and maize
This paper reviews the current status and prospects for in situ conservation of maize and wheat and their relatives. The caricature of in situ conservation-that it imposes cultural stasis and isolation on marginal ...
