Development of multiplex PCR and identification of major quality genes in cultivars from Yellow and Huai River Valley wheat region
(Objective) Wheat quality is controlled by many loci and each of them has several alleles. Development of multiplex PCR is very important to enhance the efficiency and reduce the cost in molecular marker assisted breeding ...
Mineral element distributions in milling fractions of Chinese wheats
Malnutrition related to micronutrient deficiency can create immense economic and societal problems. The objective of this study was to quantify the mineral element concentration distribution in milled fractions, using 43 ...
Molecular mapping of leaf rust resistance gene LrZH84 in Chinese wheat line Zhou 8425B
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is one of the most widespread diseases in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) worldwide. With the objective of identifying and mapping new genes for resistance to leaf rust, F1, F2 ...
Using economics to explain spatial diversity in a wheat crop: examples from Australia and China
Spatial diversity indicators may serve an important function for policymakers as they seek to manage crop genetic diversity and potential externalities associated with diffusion of some types of genetically improved crops. ...
Phenolic acid profiles of Chinese wheat cultivars
Phenolic acid concentrations were determined in 37 Chinese commercial winter wheat cultivars grown at a single site over two seasons, and fractions comprising free and bound types were analyzed using HPLC with measurements ...
Effects of different water addition levels on Chinese white noodle quality
(Objective) Water addition is an important factor influencing noodle preparation, therefore it is crucial to investigate the effects of water addition on noodle quality. (Method) Experiment I with 24 wheat cultivars from ...
Analysis of heat resistance for cultivars from North China winter wheat region by yield and quality traits
Selection of heat-resistance cultivars is an important approach for coping climate changes as well as ensuring stable production. Fifty-three wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars and advanced lines from the North China ...
Contribution of CIMMYT wheat germplasm to genetic improvement of grain yield in spring wheat of Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, and Xinjiang provinces
Information on advances in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) productivity is essential for genetic improvement on yield potential. Four yield potential trials with totally 59 leading cultivars from Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, and ...
Genetic improvement of grain yield and associated traits in the southern China winter wheat region: 1949 to 2000
To understand the genetic gains of grain yield in the Southern China Winter Wheat Region (SCWWR), two yield potential trials, i.e., YPT 1 including 11 leading cultivars from the Middle and Low Yangtze Valley (Zone III) and ...
