Performance of spring wheat derived from physiological strategic crossing under Mexican growing environments
(CGIAR; SADER; MasAgro; INIFAP; CIMMYT, 2019)
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 ...
Breeder friendly phenotyping
Precise estimation of genomic regions controlling lodging resistance using a set of reciprocal chromosome segment substitution lines in rice
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Severe lodging has occurred in many improved rice varieties after the recent strong typhoons in East and Southeast Asian countries. The indica variety Takanari possesses strong culm characteristics due to its large section ...
Elucidating the genetic basis of biomass accumulation and radiation use efficiency in spring wheat and its role in yield potential
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists; Society for Experimental Biology; Blackwell Publishing, 2019)
One of the major challenges for plant scientists is increasing wheat (Triticum aestivum) yield potential (YP). A significant bottleneck for increasing YP is achieving increased biomass through optimization of radiation use ...
