Guide to bread wheat breeding at CIMMYT
This special report provides a detailed introduction to the three subprograms of the CIMMYT Wheat Program. First published in the late 1980s, the report has been updated regularly as the bread wheat breeding methodology ...
Increasing the yield potential of irrigated bread wheat: basis for physiological research at CIMMYT
Yield potential (YP) is defined as the "yield of a cultivar grown in environments to which it is adapted when nutrients and water are nonlimiting, and when pests, diseases, weeds, lodging, and other stresses are effectively ...
Genetic diversity for photosynthesis in wheat under heat-stressed environments and its relationship to productivity
Genetic variation in photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance, leaf chlorophyll content, and dark respiration was studied in 16 wheat genotypes (Triticum aestivum L.) grown under high-temperature field conditions in central ...
Breeding resistance to yellow (stripe) rust in wheat
The information contained in this paper is a precis of the PhD thesis of Dr. H.P. Bimb. Since yellow (stripe) rust has recently reared its head in West and South Asia, the rapid publication of this Wheat Program Special ...
A guide to the CIMMYT bread wheat program
This special report is an updated introduction to the CIMMYT Bread Wheat Program. It is designed to help acquaint trainees, visiting scientists, mid-career fellows, and other interested persons with the Program's philosophy, ...
Photosynthetic characteristics of synthetic bread wheats
In the process of genetic improvement of bread wheat, photosynthetic rate per unit leaf area has decreased significantly from the maximum photosynthetic rate (Pmax) of the crop's diploid ancestors (donors of the A, B, and ...
Epidemiology of Karnal bunt of wheat incited by neovossia indica and an attempt to develop a disease prediction system
Karnal bunt, is a disease of the wheat grain caused by a fungus and is said to have evolved in South Asia. It has come under concern in both India and Mexico over the last few years. In the present treatise, an attempt has ...
