An assessment of wheat yield sensitivity and breeding gains in hot environments
Genetic improvements in heat tolerance of wheat provide a potential adaptation response to long-term warming trends, and may also boost yields in wheat-growing areas already subject to heat stress. Yet there have been few ...
Quantifying genetic effects of ground cover on soil water evaporation using digital imaging
Rapid development of leaf area and/or aboveground biomass has the potential to improve water harvest of rain fed wheat in Mediterranean-type environments through reduced soil evaporation. However, quantitative relationships ...
