China/CIMMYT Collaboration on wheat breeding and germplasm exchange: results of 10 years of shuttle breeding (1984-1994)
Maintaining a fruitful working relationship with a country such as China is indispensible for CIMMYT, whose mandate is to improve the productivity and sustainability of wheat and maize production systems all over the ...
Genomic prediction in CIMMYT maize and wheat breeding programs
(Springer Nature, 2014)
Genomic selection (GS) has been implemented in animal and plant species, and is regarded as a useful tool for accelerating genetic gains. Varying levels of genomic prediction accuracy have been obtained in plants, depending ...
Instrucciones para el manejo del: Ensayo Internacional de Adaptacion de Maiz (IMAN)
Ha sido reconocido desde hace mucho tiempo que el maíz difiere grandemente en su respuesta a ambientes diferentes. Muchas variedades muestran una adaptación específica a una gama muy restringida de factores climáticos o ...
International cooperation for winter wheat improvement in Central Asia: Results and perspectives
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2005)
Crop production in Central Asia has long history going back to 2000-3000 years BC. The farming in the past was mainly concentrated in irrigated areas along the two main river basins: AmuDarya and Syr-Darya. Wheat cultivation ...
Inbred line evaluation nurseries and their role in maize breeding at CIMMYT
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 1999)
CIMMYT initiated its hybrid maize (Zea mays) research programme in 1985 in response to the growing needs of the national programmes for hybrid-oriented source germplasm. Since 1991 CIMMYT has released a total of 424 inbreds ...
Applications of raised-bed planting systems to wheat
Wheat has traditionally been planted in solid stands, especially in irrigated environments and rainfed production systems with moderate to high rainfall. Wheat is usually planted by either drilling closely spaced rows 10-30 ...
Optimal search in ex situ collections of wheat genetic resources
This paper develops a theoretical model for analyzing gene bank management decisions regarding the search for traits of economic value in ex situ collections of wheat. The model is applied to data on the probability of ...
Impacts of international wheat breeding research in the developing world, 1966-90
1986-90. Overall, varieties originating directly from CIMMYT crosses or from NARS crosses using a CIMMYT parent occupy 40 million hectares of wheat in the developing world. It is estimated that adoption of MVs from 1977 ...
Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
(Public Library of Science, 2012)
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
