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. ...
Stability in performance of quality protein maize under abiotic stress
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2008)
Quality protein maize (QPM) has emerged an affordable and viable option to alleviate protein malnutrition and reduce animal feed costs, given that its grain protein contains more than double the lysine and tryptophan ...
Genetica de la resistencia a roya amarilla en plantas adultas de trigo harinero
(Sociedad Mexicana de Fitogenética, 2009)
La roya lineal amarilla del trigo (Triticum aestivum L.) causada por Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici es una enfermedad de creciente importancia en los Valles Altos de México, pues llega a causar perdidas en el rendimiento ...
Genetics and breeding for durable resistance to leaf and stripe rusts in wheat
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2005)
Yellow (or stripe) and leaf (or brown) rusts, caused by Puccinia striiformis and P. triticina, respectively, are important diseases of wheat worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars is the most economical and environmentally ...
The economic impact in developing countries of leaf rust resistance breeding in CIMMYT-related spring bread wheat
This study was undertaken to estimate the economic impact of efforts since 1973 by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) to develop spring bread wheat varieties resistant to leaf rust caused by ...
Practical guide to the identification of selected diseases of wheat and Barley
Selecting disease resistant germplasm is an essential component of breeding programs–in this case, wheat and barley programs. To achieve its objectives, the CIMMYT wheat program sistematically and consistently causes ...
Current status, likely migration and strategies to mitigate the threat to wheat production from race Ug99 (TTKS) of stem rust pathogen
(CABI Publishing, 2006)
Stem or black rust, caused by Puccinia graminis tritici, has historically caused severe losses to wheat (Triticum aestivum) production worldwide. Successful control of the disease for over three decades through the use of ...
Relationship between drought and excess moisture tolerance in maize (Zea mays L.)
(Southern Cross Publishing Group, 2008)
Maize crops grown during summer-rainy season in Asian tropics are prone to face both drought and excess moisture stress due uneven distribution patterns of monsoon rains in the region. We attempted to identify the relationship ...
Increasing genetic yield and mitigating effects of key biotic and abiotic constraints to wheat production in India through international wheat resources and partnerships
(Society for Advancement of Wheat and Barley Research, 2007)
The surplus wheat production in India and the world in the 1990s have eroded in recent years due to stagnating productivity and increasing demands. Production must increase at least 2% annually until 2020 to meet future ...
