International Winter Wheat Improvement Program: history, activities, impact and future
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
International Winter Wheat Improvement Program (IWWIP) was established in 1986 between the Government of Turkey and CIMMYT with three main objectives: (1) develop winter/facultative germplasm for Central and West Asia, (2) ...
Genetic analysis of tropical quality protein maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important source of carbohydrates and protein in the diet in sub-Saharan Africa. The objectives of this study were to (i) estimate general (GCA) and specific combining abilities (SCA) of 13 new ...

Genetic dissection of drought and heat‐responsive agronomic traits in wheat
(John Wiley & Sons, 2019)
High yield and wide adaptation are principal targets of wheat breeding but are hindered by limited knowledge on genetic basis of agronomic traits and abiotic stress tolerances. In this study, 277 wheat accessions were ...
Management of drought stress in field phenotyping
In agriculture, the term drought refers to a meteorological condition in which the amount of water available through rainfall and/or irrigation is insufficient to meet the crop needs for optimal growth and development. ...
Phenotyping for abiotic stress tolerance in maize: waterlogging stress. A field manual
Maize crops grown during the summer rainy season in the tropics occasionally face extreme weather conditions that limit crop establishment and yield potential. Among various abiotic stresses, contingent/intermittent soil ...
STMA Bulletin: Stress Tolerant Maize for Africa
(CIMMYT; IITA, 2017)
Access to affordable improved maize varieties by part of the 200 million African smallholders who relentlessly grow and depend on maize for food and livelihood is a key focus for CIMMYT and the International Institute of ...
