Variation in developmental patterns among elite wheat lines and relationships with yield, yield components and spike fertility
Developmental patterns strongly influence spike fertility and grain number, which are primarily determined during the stem elongation period (i.e. time between terminal spikelet phase and anthesis). It has been proposed ...
Assessment of the individual and combined effects of Rht8 and Ppd-D1a on plant height, time to heading and yield traits in common wheat
Grain yield in cereal crops is a complex trait controlled by multiple genes and influenced by developmental processes and environment. Here we report the effects of alleles Rht8 and Ppd-D1a on plant height, time to heading, ...
Combining yield potential and drought resilience in a spring wheat diversity panel
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists, 2020)
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 ...
