Avoiding lodging in irrigated spring wheat. II. Genetic variation of stem and root structural properties
Lodging-related traits were evaluated on the CIMMYT Core spring wheat Germplasm Panel (CIMCOG) inthe Yaqui Valley of North-West Mexico during three seasons (2010–2013). Genetic variation was signif-icant for all the ...
Dynamics of floret development determining differences in spike fertility in an elite population of wheat
Further increases in wheat yield potential could be achieved through a better understanding of the dynamics of floret primordia generation/degeneration, a process which has received little attention. We quantified genotypic ...
Improving crop adaptation to climate change through strategic crossing of stress adaptive traits
Crossing programs based on phenomics have resulted in a new generation of drought adapted wheat lines based on strategic crossing of complementary physiological traits (PT) that have been included in CIMMYT's international ...
Strategic crossing of biomass and harvest index—source and sink—achieves genetic gains in wheat
To accelerate genetic gains in breeding, physiological trait (PT) characterization of candidate parents can help make more strategic crosses, increasing the probability of accumulating favorable alleles compared to crossing ...
