Heat and drought adaptive QTL in a wheat population designed to minimize confounding agronomic effects
A restricted range in height and phenology of the elite Seri/Babax recombinant inbred line (RIL) population makes it ideal for physiological and genetic studies. Previous research has shown differential expression for yield ...
Overview on crop genetic engineering for drought-prone environments
(Academic Journals, 2007)
The use of water in farming, numbers and problems with draught and water efficiency.
Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2012)
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
Cultivo intercalado de cereales con especies de leguminosas que fijan N: un metodo para conservar los recursos del suelo en sistemas de bajos insumos
La producción de cereales con pocos insumos y gran eficiencia contribuye a aliviar la pobreza, incrementa los ingresos agrícolas y favorece la conservación del medio ambiente (1os suelos y el agua). Este Informe Especial ...
Association of water spectral indices with plant and soil water relations in contrasting wheat genotypes
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2010)
Spectral reflectance indices can be used to estimate the water status of plants in a rapid, non-destructive manner. Water spectral indices were measured on wheat under a range of water-deficit conditions in field-based ...

Application of physiology in wheat breeding
How can disciplinary research in physiology complement wheat breeding? This introductory chapter is intended to provide broad guidelines to help breeding programs: 1) assess whether physiological criteria should be included ...
Using canopy temperature depression to select for yield potential of wheat in heat stressed environments
The main objective of the study was to validate the use of canopy temperature depression (CTD) as a rapid early generation screening tool for heat tolerance in wheat. CTD was measured at hot sites in Mexico on F2 derived ...
