The Asian maize biotechnology network (AMBIONET): a model for strengthening national agricultural research systems
This report reviews the impacts of the Asian Maize Biotechnology Network (AMBIONET), organized by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) with funding from the Asian Development Bank to strengthen the ...
Seedling and slow rusting resistance to stripe rust in Chinese common wheats
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2006)
Identification of seedling and slow stripe rust resistance genes is important for gene pyramiding, gene deployment, and developing slow-rusting wheat cultivars to control the disease. A total of 98 Chinese lines were ...
Identification of genomic regions controlling adult-plant stripe rust resistance in Chinese Landrace Pingyuan 50 through bulked segregant analysis
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2010)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is one of the most widespread and destructive wheat diseases worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars with adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective approach for ...
Proceedings of the Seventh Asian Regional Maize Workshop
The regional maize workshop is an important scientific event that brings together maize researchers regionwide to interact, exchange ideas, share knowledge, and review progress of important research activities. This was ...
QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to stripe rust in Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanyu 16
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2012)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is a serious wheat fungal disease, causing significant annual yield losses worldwide. The Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanyu 16 has shown good adult-plant resistance ...
Progress of wheat breeding in China and the future perspective
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
During the last ten years, Chinese wheat breeding has mainly made progresses in three aspects, i.e., (1) two sets of cultivars with high yielding potential, improved quality, and multi-resistance to various diseases were ...
Breeding for resistance to Fusarium head blight of wheat in the mid- to lower Yangtze River Valley of China
Fusarium head blight (FHB) of wheat or scab is an important fungal disease in many areas of the world, especially where humid moist conditions prevail from heading to maturity. It is a particularly troublesome disease in ...
Seedling and adult plant resistance to powdery mildew in Chinese bread wheat cultivars and lines
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2005)
Powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is a widespread wheat disease in China. Identification of race-specific genes and adult plant resistance (APR) is of major importance in breeding for an efficient ...
Wheat strip rust epidemic and virulence of Puccinia striiformis f.sp. tritici in China in 2002
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2004)
In China, wheat stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is one of the most destructive diseases of wheat and can cause severe yield losses when susceptible cultivars are grown and weather conditions are ...
Quantitative trait loci mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in Chinese wheat cultivar Bainong 64
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2009)
Adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective means of controlling powdery mildew in wheat. In the present study, 406 simple-sequence repeat markers were used to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for APR to powdery mildew ...
