Improvement in yield of bread wheat cultivars released in Ethiopia from 1949 to 1987
(African Crop Science Society, 1995)
Thirteen bread wheat ( Triticum aestivum check for this species in other resources L.) cultivars popular in the highlands of Ethiopia and representative of the period from 1949 to 1987 were studied for two cropping seasons ...
Grain yield of wheat as affected by cropping sequence and fertilizer application in Southeastern Ethiopia
(African Crop Science Society, 1997)
Cropping systems in the Ethiopian highlands consist primarily of cereals in rotation with grain legume and oilseed crops; the proportional allocation among crop species varies with altitude, rainfall, and soil type. Barley ...
Developing and deploying climate-resilient maize varieties in the developing world
In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and Asia maize yields remain variable due to climate shocks. Over the past decade extensive progress has been made on the development and delivery of climate-resilient maize. In 2016 over 70 000 ...
Genotype by environment interactions and agronomic performance of doubled haploids testcross maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids
In vivo production of maternal haploid plants and advancement in chromosome doubling technology has led to rapid production of doubled haploid homozygous lines. These in turn have boosted rapid advancement in most breeding ...
Performance and adaptability of doubled haploid maize testcross hybrids under drought stress and non-stress conditions
(International Research Journals, 2014)
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 ...
Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
