Increasing yield potential in wheat: breaking the barriers. Proceedings of a workshop held in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico
CIMMYT's focus on developing wheat varieties that produce higher and more stable yields has made a tremendous difference in the lives of millions of people in the developing world. In the mid 1960s, the dramatic increases ...

Evaluation of membrane thermostability and canopy temperature depression as screening traits for heat tolerance in wheat
The production of wheat germplasm with resistance to high temperature increases in importance with world wheat demand. Temperatures considered above optimal for wheat growth and development of presently grown varieties are ...
Adaptation of wheat to the canopy environment: physiological evidence that selection for vigor or random selection may reduce the frequency of high-yielding genotypes
Increasing the potential yield of wheat is a major thrust of CIMMYT's Wheat Program. Farmer's wheat yields are linearly related to the yield potential of new varieties. At the same time, breeders should ideally be able to ...
