Strategic crossing of biomass and harvest index—source and sink—achieves genetic gains in wheat
To accelerate genetic gains in breeding, physiological trait (PT) characterization of candidate parents can help make more strategic crosses, increasing the probability of accumulating favorable alleles compared to crossing ...
Variation in developmental patterns among elite wheat lines and relationships with yield, yield components and spike fertility
Developmental patterns strongly influence spike fertility and grain number, which are primarily determined during the stem elongation period (i.e. time between terminal spikelet phase and anthesis). It has been proposed ...
Photosynthetic contribution of the ear to grain filling in wheat: a comparison of different methodologies for evaluation
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2016)
The culm (particularly the flag leaf) and the ear are believed to play a major role in providing assimilates for grain filling in wheat. However, the results obtained in the past varied depending on the methodology applied. ...
Hyperspectral reflectance as a tool to measure biochemical and physiological traits in wheat
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2018)
Improving photosynthesis to raise wheat yield potential has emerged as a major target for wheat physiologists. Photosynthesis-related traits, such as nitrogen per unit leaf area (Narea) and leaf dry mass per area (LMA), ...
Improving crop adaptation to climate change through strategic crossing of stress adaptive traits
Crossing programs based on phenomics have resulted in a new generation of drought adapted wheat lines based on strategic crossing of complementary physiological traits (PT) that have been included in CIMMYT's international ...
UAV-based imagery for phenotyping in breeding and physiological pre-breeding of wheat at CIMMYT
(CIMMYT; IWYP, [2016?])
Identifying avenues for increases in HI whilst maintaining post-anthesis photosynthetic capacity in wheat
(The University of Nottingham; MasAgro; CONACYT; CIMMYT, 2016)
