Economic benefits of blast-resistant biofortified wheat in Bangladesh: the case of BARI Gom 33
The first occurrence of wheat blast in 2016 threatened Bangladesh's already precarious food security situation. The Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), together with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement ...
Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT?s (International Maize and ...
Genome-wide association mapping for leaf tip necrosis and pseudo-black chaff in relation to durable rust resistance in wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
The partial rust resistance genes Lr34 and Sr2 have been used extensively in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) improvement, as they confer exceptional durability. Interestingly, the resistance of Lr34 is associated with the ...
Genetic dissection of grain zinc concentration in spring wheat for mainstreaming biofortification in CIMMYT wheat breeding
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
Wheat is an important staple that acts as a primary source of dietary energy, protein, and essential micronutrients such as iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) for the world?s population. Approximately two billion people suffer from ...
Genetic contribution of synthetic hexaploid wheat to CIMMYT’s spring bread wheat breeding germplasm
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019)
Synthetic hexaploid (SH) wheat (AABBD’D’) is developed by artificially generating a fertile hybrid between tetraploid durum wheat (Triticum turgidum, AABB) and diploid wild goat grass (Aegilops tauschii, D’D’). Over three ...
Resistance to insect pests in wheat—rye and Aegilops speltoides Tausch translocation and substitution lines
Various insect pests attack wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) that can cause significant grain yield losses to the crop. Farmers usually depend on pesticides, however, smallholder farmers often have limited and ill-timed access ...
Joint use of genome, pedigree, and their interaction with environment for predicting the performance of wheat lines in new environments
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
Genome-enabled prediction plays an essential role in wheat breeding because it has the potential to increase the rate of genetic gain relative to traditional phenotypic and pedigree-based selection. Since the performance ...
Variations in straw fodder quality and grain–Straw relationships in a mapping population of 287 diverse spring wheat lines
A wheat association mapping population consisting of 287 diverse spring wheat lines were evaluated for three years in one location (Varanasi) and out of these for one year across three locations (Karnal, Dharwad and Varanasi) ...
