Genome-wide association study reveals genomic regions controlling root and shoot traits at late growth stages in wheat
(Oxford University Press, 2019)
Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2012)
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
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 ...
Hyperspectral reflectance as a tool to measure biochemical and physiological traits in wheat
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2018)
Improving photosynthesis to raise wheat yield potential has emerged as a major target for wheat physiologists. Photosynthesis-related traits, such as nitrogen per unit leaf area (Narea) and leaf dry mass per area (LMA), ...
Dynamics of floret development determining differences in spike fertility in an elite population of wheat
Further increases in wheat yield potential could be achieved through a better understanding of the dynamics of floret primordia generation/degeneration, a process which has received little attention. We quantified genotypic ...
Genetic variation for photosynthetic capacity and efficeincy in spring wheat
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2019)
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, ...
