Applications of raised-bed planting systems to wheat
Interpreting genotype X environment interaction in wheat by partial least squares regression
The partial least squares (PLS) regression method relates genotype × environment interaction effects (GEI) as dependent variables (Y) to external environmental (or cultivar) variables as the explanatory variables (X) ...
Genetic progress in wheat yield and nitrogen use efficiency under four nitrogen rates
The adaptation and performance of CIMMYT's bread wheat germplasm (Triticum aestivum L.) under conditions of low N fertility have been questioned because they were developed under medium-high levels of N fertility. The ...
Adapting wheat cultivars to resource conserving farming practices and human nutritional needs
As farmers increasingly adopt resource conserving farming practices, there is a need for wheat cultivars that better adapt to the changing environment and the nutritional needs of people, particularly those living in ...
Photothermal quotient specifications to improve wheat cultivar yield component models
Previous research has demonstrated the importance and statistical significance of the photothermal quotient (PTQ) to predict and explain wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yields. The objective of this study is to respecify PTQ ...
The role of conservation agriculture in sustainable agriculture
The paper focuses on conservation agriculture (CA), defined as minimal soil disturbance (no-till, NT) and permanent soil cover (mulch) combined with rotations, as a more sustainable cultivation system for the future. ...
Climate change: Can wheat beat the heat?
Climate change could strongly affect the wheat crop that accounts for 21% of food and 200 million hectares of farmland worldwide. This article reviews some of the approaches for addressing the expected effects that climate ...
