Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science, 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
Identification and validation of a common stem rust resistance locus in two bi-parental populations
(Frontiers; Frontiers Media, 2018)
Races belonging to Ug99 lineage of stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) continue to pose a threat to wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production in various African countries. Growing resistant varieties is ...
Prospects and challenges of applied genomic selection-a new paradigm in breeding for grain yield in bread wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomic selection (GS) has been promising for increasing genetic gains in several species. Therefore, we evaluated the potential integration of GS for grain yield (GY) in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in CIMMYT's elite ...
Ñipal F2016: variety of bread wheat for the Rural District 014
Recent efforts in the Experimental Field of Mexicali Valley of the National Institute of Agricultural and Livestock Forestry Research have allowed the development of wheat varieties of high yield and industrial quality. ...
Integrating genomic-enabled prediction and high-throughput phenotyping in breeding for climate-resilient bread wheat
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019)
Genomic selection and high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) are promising tools to accelerate breeding gains for high-yielding and climate-resilient wheat varieties. Hence, our objective was to evaluate them for predicting ...
