Height reduction and agronomic performance for selected gibberellin-responsive dwarfing genes in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Improved ability to establish well when sowing at depth, into crop residues or hard soils should lead to increased yields in these situations. The semi-dwarfingRht-B1b and Rht-D1bgenes reduce plant height and increase grain ...
Characterization of Chinese wheat germplasm for resistance to Fusarium head blight at CIMMYT, Mexico
Fusarium head blight (FHB) poses a challenge for wheat breeders worldwide; there are limited sources of resistance and the genetic basis for resistance is not well understood. In the mid-1980s, a shuttle breeding and ...
Latin American maize germplasm regeneration and conservation
During 1992-96, a collaborative project involving genebanks of 14 countries in Latin America, with economic and/or technical support from USDA under project Noah, the USDA-ARS National Seed Storage Laboratory (NSSL), and ...
