Triticale breeding and research at CIMMYT: a progress report
Triticale has created considerable discussion and controversy during the past few years. It has been promoted extensively in North America as a miracle crop, the answer tc growing protein deficits. Its failure to live up ...
Treatment design for fertilizer use experimentation
Ideally the experimenter would like to use treatment design to minimize both variance and bias problems in estimating yield from fertilizer application. Selecting a treatment design for variance considerations will not ...
Progress in developing triticale as an economic crop
This report summarizes the progress made and some of the problems encountered in the Triticale program at CIMMYT during the past year and a supplement to the reports prepared in 1968 and 1969. Since copies of the previous ...
Epidemiology of wheat rusts in the western hemisphere
Shortly after the turn of the century, devastating wheat rust epidemics in the Great Plains of North America (Northern Mexico, the Plains of the U.S.A. and the Prairie Provinces of Canada), prompted the study of physiologic ...
Results of the third Near East American Spring Wheat Yield Nursery, 1963-1965
The cooperative Food and Agriculture Organization-Rockefeller Foundation, Near East-American Spring Wheat Yield Nursery originated as an outgrowth of a recommendation made by Dr. Jose Vallega (formerly with the Ministry ...
Results of the fourth Inter-American Spring Wheat Yield Nursery 1963-1964
Prior to 1960. a number of scientists who had had occasion to stqdy uniform sets of material such as the International Rust Nursery of the United States Department of Agriculture. noticed that, apart from disease reaction. ...
Results of the first International Spring Wheat Yield Nursery 1964-1965
Adaptation is perhaps the most elusive concept in plant breeding. Not only is there surprisingly little information concerning the performance of varieties over a broad range of environments in even the major crop plants, ...
Hybrid wheats: their development and food potential
There is no general overproduction of wheat in the world today. However, since the termination of World War II a few countries, such as the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and Argentina, either temporarily or over a period of ...
Combining data from fertilizer experiments into a function useful for estimating specific fertilizer recommendations
The decision of greatest economic importance that farmers have to make in using fertilizers is the selection of the fertilizer treatment to employ. T f the treatment selected includes an element that is not needed or a ...
A modified method for rapid tryptophan analysis of maize
Due to their low lysine content, the cereal grains are generally considered of reduced nutritional quality in comparison to other protein sources. In maize, a~ second diet limiting amino acid is tryptophan. That increases ...
