Helminthosporium blights of wheat: spot blotch and tan spot. Proceedings of an international workshop held at CIMMYT
(UCL; BADC; CIMMYT, 1998)
Over the last 30 ye~rs, in developing countries, the outstanding advances in wheat productivity attained by CIMMYT and its partners have contributed greatly to the well-being of millions of people. As growing numbers of ...
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 ...
China/CIMMYT Collaboration on wheat breeding and germplasm exchange: results of 10 years of shuttle breeding (1984-1994)
Maintaining a fruitful working relationship with a country such as China is indispensible for CIMMYT, whose mandate is to improve the productivity and sustainability of wheat and maize production systems all over the ...
Impacts of international wheat breeding research in the developing world, 1966-90
1986-90. Overall, varieties originating directly from CIMMYT crosses or from NARS crosses using a CIMMYT parent occupy 40 million hectares of wheat in the developing world. It is estimated that adoption of MVs from 1977 ...
Genetic dissection of grain size and grain number trade-offs in CIMMYT Wheat Germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Grain weight (GW) and number per unit area of land (GN) are the primary components of grain yield in wheat. In segregating populations both yield components often show a negative correlation among themselves. Here we use ...
International cooperation for winter wheat improvement in Central Asia: Results and perspectives
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2005)
Crop production in Central Asia has long history going back to 2000-3000 years BC. The farming in the past was mainly concentrated in irrigated areas along the two main river basins: AmuDarya and Syr-Darya. Wheat cultivation ...
Optimal search in ex situ collections of wheat genetic resources
This paper develops a theoretical model for analyzing gene bank management decisions regarding the search for traits of economic value in ex situ collections of wheat. The model is applied to data on the probability of ...
Applications of raised-bed planting systems to wheat
Wheat has traditionally been planted in solid stands, especially in irrigated environments and rainfed production systems with moderate to high rainfall. Wheat is usually planted by either drilling closely spaced rows 10-30 ...
CIMMYT in Mexico: the cradle of global agricultural innovation
Mexico has been CIMMYT's host country and partner sice the organization's founding in 1966, and has contributed substantively to CIMMYT work with farmers, other partners and donors across the developing world. Through ...
