Identification of 1BL/1RS translocation based on mixograph parameters in common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
lBL/1RS translocation has been widely used for improving agronomic performance and disease resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), however, it has strong negative effect on processing quality. To develop a method for ...
Effect of allelic variation and expression quantity at Glu-1 Loci on size distribution of Glutenin Polymer in common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
The size distribution of glutenin polymers is a key factor in determining gluten strength and end-use quality, while the relationship with the quality and quantity of subunits at Glu-1. loci has been not studied in detailed. ...
Molecular mapping across three populations reveals a QTL hotspot region on chromosome 3 for secondary traits associated with drought tolerance in tropical maize
(Springer; Springer Nature, 2014)
Identifying quantitative trait loci (QTL) of sizeable effects that are expressed in diverse genetic backgrounds across contrasting water regimes particularly for secondary traits can significantly complement the conventional ...
Household energy consumption and its determinants in Timor-Leste
(Asian Development Bank Institute; Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, 2016)
Using data from the 2007 Timor-Leste Living Standards Survey, this paper examines the determinants of household energy choices in Timor-Leste. The majority of households are dependent on dirty fuels such as fuelwood and ...
Improving maize grain yield under drought stress and non-stress environments in Sub-Saharan Africa using marker-assisted recurrent selection
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
In marker-assisted recurrent selection (MARS), a subset of molecular markers significantly associated with target traits of interest are used to predict the breeding value of individual plants, followed by rapid recombination ...
Effect of allelic variation at the Glu-1 Loci and 1B/1R translocation on the quantity of gluten protein fractions and pan bread making quality in common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2008)
Composition and quantity of gluten protein fractions play an important role in determining the processing quality in common wheat. Wheat varieties with over-expression of HMW glutenin subunit produced very strong and ...
A common ground for maize research: regional cooperation in the Middle East and North Africa
This publication presents several aspects of regional cooperation in maize research in the Middle East and North Africa. Background on maize production in this area, the role of CIMMYT's Maize Program in developing and ...
Urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (SDG 13): transforming agriculture and food systems
Actions on climate change (SDG 13), including in the food system, are crucial. SDG 13 needs to align with the Paris Agreement, given that UNFCCC negotiations set the framework for climate change actions. Food system actions ...
Occurrence of the root-knot nematode species in vegetable crops in Souss region of Morocco
(Korean Society of Plant Pathology, 2018)
Root-knot nematodes ?Meloidogyne spp? are the most destructive group of plant parasitic nematodes cause-ing serious losses in vegetables crops and this damages worsened when crops grown under greenhouses conditions. In ...
On-farm evaluation of alternative bread wheat production technologies in northwestern Ethiopia
(African Crop Science Society, 1995)
