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 ...
Sustaining wheat yields with crop management in heat stressed environments: effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers, mulching, and irrigation frequency
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) emend. Thell) yield reduction associated with heat strees is a worldwide problem. The objectives of this research were to (i) to determine effects of major crop management factors on performance ...

An integrated approach to maintaining cereal productivity under climate change
Wheat, rice, maize, pearl millet, and sorghum provide over half of the world's food calories. To maintain global food security, with the added challenge of climate change, there is an increasing need to exploit existing ...
International Symposium on Wheat Yield Potential: Challenges to International Wheat Breeding
Like many other patterns, investment in research is often cyclical. International centers like CIMMYT have focused substantial resources on biotic and abiotic stresses for about two decades now, but raising total productivity ...
Application of physiology in wheat breeding
How can disciplinary research in physiology complement wheat breeding? This introductory chapter is intended to provide broad guidelines to help breeding programs: 1) assess whether physiological criteria should be included ...
