Wheat bibliography from Southern Africa: breeding, pathology and production research and extension literature
The impetus for this bibliography came as a guide to the Steering Committee of the Maize and Wheat Improvement Research Network for SADC (MWIRNET) to the published wheat research conducted in southern Africa. This type of ...
Wheat, barley, and triticale cultivars: a list of publications in which national cereal breeders have noted the cooperation or germplasm they received from CIMMYT
Sustainable cereal production on farmers' fields: that is the ultimate measure of the impact of CIMMYT's research. Its achievement requires a combination of effective technologies and the most appropriate seeds. Over the ...
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 ...
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 ...
Vernalization requirement and response to day length in guiding development in wheat
Vernalization requirement and response to day length are the major factors controlling development in wheat (Triticum aesitvum L.). This study was to determine how they integrate in the field in Obregon, Sonora, Mexico to ...
Canopy temperatures of wheat: relationships with yield and potential as a technique for early generation selection
It is shown that, for bread wheat, air-canopy temperature difference correlates significantly with grain yield, especially when measurements are taken later in the day, We discuss the potential of this technique as an early ...
Four years of on-farm research results at Chalco, Mexico
The purpose of this special report is to record the on-farm research activities conducted around the area of Chalco, in the High Valley of Mexico, from 1986-1990. The research was conducted as part of the CIMMYT Wheat Crop ...
Assessment and development of an agricultural research station: physical and personnel needs
The agricultural research station plays a vital role in the generation of both new knowledge and appropriate technologies for farmers. However, despite the importance and complexity of running research stations, there is ...
Using canopy temperature depression to select for yield potential of wheat in heat stressed environments
The main objective of the study was to validate the use of canopy temperature depression (CTD) as a rapid early generation screening tool for heat tolerance in wheat. CTD was measured at hot sites in Mexico on F2 derived ...
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, ...
