Genetic impact of Rht dwarfing genes on grain micronutrients concentration in wheat
Wheat is a major staple food crop providing about 20% of dietary energy and proteins, and food products made of whole grain wheat are a major source of micronutrients like Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Magnesium ...
Breeding for enhanced zinc and iron concentration in CIMMYT spring wheat germplasm
(Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences, 2011)
Micronutrient malnutrition, resulting from dietary deficiency of important minerals such as zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe), is a widespread food-related health problem. Genetic enhancement of crops with elevated levels of these ...
Analisis de virulencia de la roya amarilla (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) del trigo (Triticum aestivum L.) En los valles altos de Mexico
(Colegio de Postgraduados, 2010)
La roya amarilla (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) del trigo (Triticum aestivum L.) causa pérdidas importantes en rendi¬miento en los Valles Altos de México, debido a que el hongo puede evolucionar y vencer la resistencia ...
Virulencia de la roya amarilla del trigo en las principales zonas productoras de riego en Mexico
(Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Forestales, Agrícolas y Pecuarias, 2009)
La roya amarilla del trigo (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) causa pérdidas importantes en el rendimiento en trigo (Triticum aestivum L.), sembrado en condiciones de riego, debido a que el hongo tienen la capacidad de ...
Genomic Bayesian functional regression models with interactions for predicting wheat grain yield using hyper‑spectral image data
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras that provide hundreds of reflectance data at discrete narrow bands in many environments. These bands often cover the whole visible light spectrum and part of the infrared and ...
Resistance of some Iraqi bread wheat cultivars to Puccinia triticina
(Universitá Degli Studi Firenze, 2005)
Brown rust (leaf rust) caused by Puccinia triticina is one of the most serious diseases of wheat worldwide. In Iraq the occurrence and distribution of brown rust is more regular and uniform than that of other wheat rusts. ...
High-density mapping of triple rust resistance in barley using DArT-Seq markers
The recent availability of an assembled and annotated genome reference sequence for the diploid crop barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) provides new opportunities to study the genetic basis of agronomically important traits such ...
Genetics of greenbug resistance in synthetic hexaploid wheat derived germplasm
The greenbug, Schizaphis graminum Rondani, significantly reduces wheat, Triticum aestivum L., grain yields if not controlled. Host plant resistance (HPR) can protect yield, is environmentally friendly and easy to use. Our ...
Progress towards genetics and breeding for minor genes based resistance to Ug99 and other rusts in CIMMYT high yielding spring wheat
Wheat rusts continue to cause significant losses worldwide despite major efforts given to their genetic control. This is due to frequent evolution and selection of virulence in pathogen overcoming the deployed race-specific ...
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 ...
