Phenotyping approaches for physiological breeding and gene discovery in wheat
Conceptual models of drought-adaptive traits have been used in breeding to accumulate complementary physiological traits (PT) in selected progeny, resulting in distribution of advanced lines to rain-fed environments worldwide ...
Simultaneous selection of major and minor genes: use of QTL to increase selection efficiency of coleoptile length of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Plant breeders simultaneously select for qualitative traits controlled by one or a small number of major genes, as well as for polygenic traits controlled by multiple genes that may be detected as quantitative trait loci ...
Effects of flour extraction rate, added water, and salt on color and texture of Chinese white noodles
Both cultivar and noodle composition and preparation have important effects on noodle quality. In this study, the effects of flour extraction rate (50, 60, and 70%), added water (33, 35, and 37%), and salt concentration ...
Effects of conservation tillage on water supply and rainfed maize production in semiarid zones of west-central Mexico
This study analyzes the potential of conservation tillage (CT) for improving maize productivity under a range of soil and rainfall conditions in a semiarid zone of West-Central Mexico, evaluating the consequences of tillage ...
Agriculture in the 21st century
This lecture reviews prospects for meeting the three major challenges confronting agriculture at the start of the 21st century: the food supply challenge, the need for agriculture to play a central role in reducing poverty; ...
Science and partnerships to reduce poverty and hunger: medium-term plan of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), 2005-2007
This publication describes how CIMMYT and its partners are applying science to reduce poverty and hunger through six new research programs established as a result of the Center's recent strategic planning exercise. It ...
