Genetic mapping reveals large-effect QTL for anther extrusion in CIMMYT spring wheat
Hybrid breeding facilitates the exploitation of heterosis and it can result in significant genetic gains and increased crop yields. Inefficient cross-pollination is a major limiting factor that hampers hybrid wheat seed ...
MARPLE, a point-of-care, strain-level disease diagnostics and surveillance tool for complex fungal pathogens
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Effective disease management depends on timely and accurate diagnosis to guide control measures. The capacity to distinguish between individuals in a pathogen population with specific properties such as fungicide ...
QTL mapping for micronutrients concentration and yield component traits in a hexaploid wheat mapping population
Bread wheat is a major staple cereal provides more than 20% of dietary energy and protein supply to global population. However, with increasing population growth, the problem of nutritional deficiencies is increasingly ...
Simultaneous biofortification of wheat with zinc, iodine, selenium, and iron through foliar treatment of a micronutrient cocktail in six countries
(American Chemical Society, 2019)
Field experiments were conducted on wheat to study the effects of foliar-applied iodine(I) alone, Zn (zinc) alone, and a micronutrient cocktail solution containing I, Zn, Se (selenium), and Fe (iron) on grain yield and ...
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 ...
First Report of Wheat Blast Caused by Magnaporthe oryzae Pathotype triticum in Bangladesh
(American Phytopathological Society, 2016)
Wheat blast or ‘brusone,’ caused by the ascomycetous fungus Magnaporthe oryzae B.C. Couch (syn. Pyricularia oryzae Cavara), was first identified in 1985 in Brazil. M. oryzae is composed of a range of morphologically identical ...
Determination of resistance in winter wheat genotypes to the dryland root rots caused by Fusarium Culmorum in Turkey
(Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University; Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University, 2018)
Nutritive appraisal of various wheat varieties/lines for developing biofortified wheat (Triticum Aestivum L.)
(OMICS International, 2018)
Essential micronutrients such as iron and zinc deficiencies affect more than two billion people globally especially the pregnant women and children below the age of five. Wheat, like many other staple cereals, contains low ...
Hybrid wheat prediction using genomic, pedigree, and environmental covariables interaction models
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
In this study, we used genotype × environment interactions (G×E) models for hybrid prediction, where similarity between lines was assessed by pedigree and molecular markers, and similarity between environments was accounted ...
Integrating genomic-enabled prediction and high-throughput phenotyping in breeding for climate-resilient bread wheat
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019)
Genomic selection and high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) are promising tools to accelerate breeding gains for high-yielding and climate-resilient wheat varieties. Hence, our objective was to evaluate them for predicting ...
