Calidad del grano de trigo
Genetic structures of the CIMMYT international yield trial targeted to irrigated environments
International yield trials are assembled by CIMMYT to disseminate promising wheat breeding materials worldwide. To assess the genomic structure and linkage disequilibrium (LD) within this germplasm, wheat lines disseminated ...
An accurate DNA marker assay for stem rust resistance gene Sr2 in wheat
The stem rust resistance gene Sr2 has provided broad-spectrum protection against stem rust (Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici) since its wide spread deployment in wheat from the 1940s. Because Sr2 confers partial ...
Mejoramiento de la calidad de trigo
Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science, 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
High-throughput phenotyping enabled genetic dissection of crop lodging in wheat
(Frontiers Media, 2019)
Race non-specific resistance to rust diseases in CIMMYT spring wheats
Rust diseases continue to cause significant losses to wheat production worldwide. Although the life of effective race-specific resistance genes can be prolonged by using gene combinations, an alternative approach is to ...
Adaptation and performance of CIMMYT spring wheat genotypes targeted to high rainfall areas of the world
The high rainfall mega-environment [mega environment 2 (ME2)], characterized by more than 500 mm rainfall during wheat season, is one of the 12 mega-environments on which the global wheat breeding program of the International ...
