Modeling the effect of a heat wave on maize production in the USA and its implications on food security in the developing world
This study uses geo-spatial crop modeling to quantify the biophysical impact of weather extremes. More specifically, the study analyzes the weather extreme which affected maize production in the USA in 2012; it also estimates ...
Base temperatures and degrees days development of 10 Mexican corn accessions
The temperature variation of a place is a function of the elements and factors of the climate, which are altered to a greater or lesser extent by climate change, which is a challenge to determine the periods of thermal ...
Effect of climate change on spring wheat yields in North America and Eurasia in 1981-2015 and implications for breeding
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Wheat yield dynamic in Canada, USA, Russia and Kazakhstan from 1981 till 2015 was related to air temperature and precipitation during wheat season to evaluate the effects of climate change. The study used yield data from ...
Assessing high-impact spots of climate change: spatial yield simulations with Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) model
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
Drybeans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) are an important subsistence crop in Central America. Future climate change may threaten drybean production and jeopardize smallholder farmers’ food security. We estimated yield changes in ...
Identifying loci with breeding potential across temperate and tropical adaptation via EigenGWAS and EnvGWAS
Understanding the genomic basis of adaptation in maize is important for gene discovery and the improvement of breeding germplasm, but much remains a mystery in spite of significant population genetics and archaeological ...
Threats of tar spot complex disease of maize in the United States of America and its global consequences
(Springer Verlag, 2019)
The emergence and spread of new crop diseases threatens the global food security situation. Phyllachora maydis, one of the three fungal pathogens involved in Tar Spot Complex (TSC) of maize, a disease native to Latin ...
Improving agricultural knowledge management: The AgTrials experience [version 1; referees: 2 approved]
(F1000 Research, 2017)
Background: Opportunities to use data and information to address challenges in international agricultural research and development are expanding rapidly. The use of agricultural trial and evaluation data has enormous ...
Economic benefits of blast-resistant biofortified wheat in Bangladesh: the case of BARI Gom 33
The first occurrence of wheat blast in 2016 threatened Bangladesh's already precarious food security situation. The Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), together with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement ...
Adapting maize production to climate change in sub-Saharan Africa
(Springer Verlag, 2013)
Given the accumulating evidence of climate change in sub-Saharan Africa, there is an urgent need to develop more climate resilient maize systems. Adaptation strategies to climate change in maize systems in sub-Saharan ...
