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 ...
Photosynthetic contribution of the ear to grain filling in wheat: a comparison of different methodologies for evaluation
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2016)
The culm (particularly the flag leaf) and the ear are believed to play a major role in providing assimilates for grain filling in wheat. However, the results obtained in the past varied depending on the methodology applied. ...

Identifying avenues for increases in HI whilst maintaining post-anthesis photosynthetic capacity in wheat
(The University of Nottingham; MasAgro; CONACYT; CIMMYT, 2016)
Increasing genetic gains in wheat through physiological genetics and breeding
In order to meet future wheat demand it is necessary to increase yield potential and develop stress adapted genotypes. To do so, research and breeding is conducted at CIMMYT through the International Wheat Yield Partnership ...
