Foliar abscisic acid-to-ethylene accumulation and response regulate shoot growth sensitivity to mild drought in wheat
Although, plant hormones play an important role in adjusting growth in response to environmental perturbation, the relative contributions of abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene remain elusive. Using six spring wheat genotypes ...
Genetic dissection of grain size and grain number trade-offs in CIMMYT Wheat Germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Grain weight (GW) and number per unit area of land (GN) are the primary components of grain yield in wheat. In segregating populations both yield components often show a negative correlation among themselves. Here we use ...
Canopy temperature and vegetation indices from high-throughput phenotyping improve accuracy of pedigree and genomic selection for grain yield in wheat
(Genetics Society of America, 2016)
Genomic selection can be applied prior to phenotyping, enabling shorter breeding cycles and greater rates of genetic gain relative to phenotypic selection. Traits measured using high-throughput phenotyping based on proximal ...
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 ...
Canopy reflectance indices and its relationship with yield in common bean plants (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) with phosphorous supply
(International Journal of Agriculture and Biology (IJAB), 2006)
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), ...
