Impacts of international maize breeding research in developing countries, 1966-98
This report, which updates and extends the findings of an earlier CIMMYT study published in 1994, documents the impacts of international maize breeding research in the developing world. Covering the period 1966-98, the ...
Results of the 1st International Heat Stress Genotype Experiment
Fischer (1989) summarized the detrimental effects of high temperature on wheat growth as follows: Yield reduction can occur at temperatures above a mean as low as 150C, with the spike and grain growth phases being especially ...
Vernalization requirement and response to day length in guiding development in wheat
Vernalization requirement and response to day length are the major factors controlling development in wheat (Triticum aesitvum L.). This study was to determine how they integrate in the field in Obregon, Sonora, Mexico to ...
Increasing the yield potential of irrigated bread wheat: basis for physiological research at CIMMYT
Yield potential (YP) is defined as the "yield of a cultivar grown in environments to which it is adapted when nutrients and water are nonlimiting, and when pests, diseases, weeds, lodging, and other stresses are effectively ...
