Increasing yield stability and input efficiencies with cost-effective mechanization in Nepal
Nepal is at a crossroads of diminishing farm-labor and inadequate investment into farming operations that, among other factors, have stagnated domestic wheat yield. Cultural and economic constraints have hindered the ...

Genetic mapping reveals large-effect QTL for anther extrusion in CIMMYT spring wheat
Hybrid breeding facilitates the exploitation of heterosis and it can result in significant genetic gains and increased crop yields. Inefficient cross-pollination is a major limiting factor that hampers hybrid wheat seed ...
QTL mapping for micronutrients concentration and yield component traits in a hexaploid wheat mapping population
Bread wheat is a major staple cereal provides more than 20% of dietary energy and protein supply to global population. However, with increasing population growth, the problem of nutritional deficiencies is increasingly ...
IPM to control soil-borne pests on wheat and sustainable food production
(Arab Society for Plant Protection, 2018)
Soil Borne Pathogens (SBPs) including the Heterodera species, cereal cyst nematode (CCN), Pratylenchus species, root lesion nematode and crown rot (CR) caused by Fusarium species, attack the roots of cereal crops resulting ...
Simultaneous biofortification of wheat with zinc, iodine, selenium, and iron through foliar treatment of a micronutrient cocktail in six countries
(American Chemical Society, 2019)
Field experiments were conducted on wheat to study the effects of foliar-applied iodine(I) alone, Zn (zinc) alone, and a micronutrient cocktail solution containing I, Zn, Se (selenium), and Fe (iron) on grain yield and ...
Mitigating the twin problems of malnutrition and wheat blast by one wheat variety, ‘BARI Gom 33’, in Bangladesh
(Polish Botanical Society, 2019)
For the first time in history outside of Latin America, deadly wheat blast caused by the fungus Magnaporthe oryzae pathotype triticum (MoT) emerged in the 2015–2016 wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) season of Bangladesh. ...
Tracking the adoption of bread wheat varieties in Afghanistan using DNA fingerprinting

MARPLE, a point-of-care, strain-level disease diagnostics and surveillance tool for complex fungal pathogens
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Effective disease management depends on timely and accurate diagnosis to guide control measures. The capacity to distinguish between individuals in a pathogen population with specific properties such as fungicide ...
