Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop of the wheat yield consortium
The abstracts herein are of presentations by crop experts for the workshop ?Wheat Yield consortium: Sponsored by SAGARPA?s international strategic component for increasing wheat performance, under the Sustainable Modernization ...
Partitioning of assimilates to deeper roots is associated with cooler canopies and increased yield under drought in wheat
Dehydration avoidance through cooler canopy temperature (CT) has been shown to explain over 60% yield variation in a random progeny derived from a Seri/Babax cross. A near ?isomorphic? subset of Seri/Babax progeny and ...
Spectral water indices for assessing yield in elite bread wheat genotypes under well-irrigated, water-stressed, and high-temperature conditions
The objective of the present work was to determine the relationship between spectral reflectance indices (SRI) and yield in spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in NW Mexico in three environments (irrigated, water-stress, ...
Application of physiology in wheat breeding
Physiological traits for improving heat tolerance in wheat
Wheat (Triticum aestivum) represents about 30% of the world?s cereal area, with over 220 million ha cultivated worldwide, often under abiotic stress. Wheat growth can be impaired by heat stress (HS) at any developmental ...
Detection of two major grain yield QTL in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under heat, drought and high yield potential environments
A large proportion of the worlds? wheat growing regions suffers water and/or heat stress at some stage during the crop growth cycle. With few exceptions, there has been no utilisation of managed environments to screen ...
Heritability, correlated response, and indirect selection involving spectral reflectance indices and grain yield in wheat
The objectives of this study were to assess the potential of using spectral reflectance indices (SRIs) as an indirect selection tool for grain yield in wheat under irrigated conditions. This paper demonstates the genetic ...
