Safeguarding the world's wheat harvests from stem rust: a global initiative
Wheat is grown on more than 200 million hectares worldwide and is a source of food and livelihoods for hundreds of millions in developing countries. Until the advent of science-based agriculture, world wheat harvests were ...
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 ...
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 ...
Genetic gains in grain yield in spring wheat in Turkey
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2017)
Genetic gain for grain yield was evaluated in 35 Turkish spring wheat varieties released between 1964 and 2010. The germplasm comprised varieties developed by the East Mediterranean Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) ...
Molecular mapping and validation of SrND643: a new wheat gene for resistance to the stem rust pathogen Ug99 race group
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2015)
This study reports the identification of a new gene conferring resistance to the Ug99 lineage of races of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Because the virulent races of stem rust pathogen ...
Association mapping of North American spring wheat breeding germplasm reveals loci conferring resistance to Ug99 and other African stem rust races
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: The recently identified Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) race TTKSK (Ug99) poses a severe threat to global wheat production because of its broad virulence on several widely deployed resistance genes. ...
Genetic gain from phenotypic and genomic selection for quantitative resistance to stem rust of wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
Stem rust of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici Eriks. and E. Henn. is a globally important disease that can cause severe yield loss. Breeding for quantitative stem rust resistance ...
Breeding strategies for resistance to the rusts of wheat
The International Workshop on Breeding Strategies for Resistance to the Rusts of Wheat was held al CIMMYT, Mexico June 29-Jul 1, 1987. It brought together an eminent panel of internationally recognized specialists who ...
Instructions for the management of the International Triticale Yield Nursery (ITYN)
Worldwide interest has been shown in the man-made crop plant called Triticale, a plant produced by crossing wheat and rye. Initially a biological oddity, Triticale has now reached the stage of having potential commercial ...
