Joint use of genome, pedigree, and their interaction with environment for predicting the performance of wheat lines in new environments
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
Genome-enabled prediction plays an essential role in wheat breeding because it has the potential to increase the rate of genetic gain relative to traditional phenotypic and pedigree-based selection. Since the performance ...
Variations in straw fodder quality and grain–Straw relationships in a mapping population of 287 diverse spring wheat lines
A wheat association mapping population consisting of 287 diverse spring wheat lines were evaluated for three years in one location (Varanasi) and out of these for one year across three locations (Karnal, Dharwad and Varanasi) ...
Rust diseases of wheat: concepts and methods of disease management
Roelfs, A.P., R.P. Singh, and E.E. Saari. 1992. Rust Diseases of Wheat: Concepts and methods of disease management. Mexico, D.F.: CIMMYT. 81 pages. The rust diseases of wheat are among the most studied of the plant diseases. ...
Wheat diseases and pests: a guide for field identification
Genomic selection for quantitative adult plant stem rust resistance in wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2014)
Quantitative adult plant resistance (APR) to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) is an important breeding target in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and a potential target for genomic selection (GS). To evaluate the ...
Comparison of models and whole-genome profiling approaches for genomic-enabled prediction of Septoria Tritici Blotch, Stagonospora Nodorum Blotch, and tan spot resistance in wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
The leaf spotting diseases in wheat that include Septoria tritici blotch (STB) caused by Zymoseptoria tritici, Stagonospora nodorum blotch (SNB) caused by Parastagonospora nodorum, and tan spot (TS) caused by Pyrenophora ...
Identification and validation of a common stem rust resistance locus in two bi-parental populations
Races belonging to Ug99 lineage of stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) continue to pose a threat to wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production in various African countries. Growing resistant varieties is ...
Genetic mapping of resistance in hexaploid wheat for a quarantine disease: karnal bunt
Karnal bunt (KB) of wheat, caused by Tilletia indica, is one of the greatest challenges to grain industry, not because of yield loss, but quarantine regulations that restrict international movement and trade of affected ...
Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Durable resistance to the rust diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) can be achieved by developing lines that have race-nonspecific adult plant resistance conferred by multiple minor slow-rusting genes. Genomic selection ...
Genetics of greenbug resistance in synthetic hexaploid wheat derived germplasm
The greenbug, Schizaphis graminum Rondani, significantly reduces wheat, Triticum aestivum L., grain yields if not controlled. Host plant resistance (HPR) can protect yield, is environmentally friendly and easy to use. Our ...
