Increasing genetic gains in wheat through physiological genetics and breeding
In order to meet future wheat demand it is necessary to increase yield potential and develop stress adapted genotypes. To do so, research and breeding is conducted at CIMMYT through the International Wheat Yield Partnership ...
Precise estimation of genomic regions controlling lodging resistance using a set of reciprocal chromosome segment substitution lines in rice
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Severe lodging has occurred in many improved rice varieties after the recent strong typhoons in East and Southeast Asian countries. The indica variety Takanari possesses strong culm characteristics due to its large section ...

Avoiding lodging in irrigated spring wheat. I. Stem and root structural requirements
A model of the lodging process has been successfully adapted for use on spring wheat grown in North-West Mexico (NWM). The lodging model was used to estimate the lodging-associated traits required to enable spring wheat ...
Avoiding lodging in irrigated spring wheat. II. Genetic variation of stem and root structural properties
Lodging-related traits were evaluated on the CIMMYT Core spring wheat Germplasm Panel (CIMCOG) inthe Yaqui Valley of North-West Mexico during three seasons (2010–2013). Genetic variation was signif-icant for all the ...
