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 ...
Technique for the maintenance of heterokayotic isolates of Bipolaris sorokiniana under ordinary conditions
One hundred heterokaryotic isolates of Bipolaris sorokiniana, collected from wheat during 1997-1998, were evaluated for their morphology, growth, number of nuclei/cell and disease causing ability. Autoclaved sorghum grains ...
Grain yield, adaptation and progress in breeding for early-maturing and heat-tolerant wheat lines in South Asia
Maintaining wheat productivity under the increasing temperatures in South Asia is a challenge. We focused on developing early maturing wheat lines as an adaptive mechanism in regions suffering from terminal heat stress and ...
Enhanced resistance in wheat against stem rust achieved by marker assisted backcrossing involving three independent Sr genes
Marker assisted backcrossing (MABC) was used to transfer the three stem rust (Puccinia graminis tritici)resistant genes Sr25, SrWeb and Sr50 into the popular Indian wheat cv. HUW234. The donor was theCIMMYT breeding line ...
Reaching out to farmers with high zinc wheat varieties through public-private partnerships: an experience from eastern-gangetic plains of India
The main objective of the HarvestPlus led wheat biofortification breeding program at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and its national program partners in South Asia is to develop and disseminate ...
Bipolaris sorokiniana of barley: infection behaviour in different members of Poaceae
Host range and infection behaviour of Bipolaris sorokiniana of barley was studied in wheat, barley, rice, phalaris, maize, pearlmillet and sugarcane. B. sorokiniana of barley varied in percent germination, germination ...
Diversity and association of isolates and symptoms of spot blotch caused by Bipolaris sorokiniana of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
A three year (2003-2005) survey was conducted to study the occurrence of spot blotch symptoms on barley genotypes grown in the eastern Gangetic plains of India. Nine types of symptoms were recorded. The two most prevalent ...
Introgression of a gene for high grain protein content (Gpc-B1) into two leading cultivars of wheat in Eastern Gangetic Plains of India through marker assisted backcross breeding
(Academic Journals, 2015)
A wheat genotype named ‘PBW343+Gpc-B1+LR24’ containing Gpc-B1 gene linked with the DNA-based marker Xucw108, developed at Choudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU), Meerut, through marker-assisted selection, was used as ...
Farmers' preference and informal seed dissemination of first Ug99 tolerant wheat variety in Bangladesh
(Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences, 2011)
Farmers' preference study and informal seed dissemination was carried out through farmer participatory variety selection (PVS) during 2006-2007 to 2008-2009 by the Wheat Research Centre (WRC), Bangladesh Agricultural ...
