Dimensions of diversity in CIMMYT bread wheat from 1965 to 2000
To the extent possible, this paper summarizes scientific evidence on the scope of the genetic base in modern bread wheat varieties in the developing world from 1965 to the present, drawing on previously published research ...
Practical guide to the identification of selected diseases of wheat and Barley
Selecting disease resistant germplasm is an essential component of breeding programs–in this case, wheat and barley programs. To achieve its objectives, the CIMMYT wheat program sistematically and consistently causes ...
Wheat and rice in Karnal and Kurukshetra Districts, Haryana, India: farmers practices, problems, and an agenda for action
Two diagnostic surveys conducted during the rice and wheat seasons in 1992 in Kamal and Kurukshetra Districts of Haryana, India, helped develop a preliminary assessment of both near-term and potential longer-term problems ...
Cloning of the broadly effective wheat leaf rust resistance gene Lr42 transferred from Aegilops tauschii
(Nature Publishing Group, 2022)
Resistance to spot blotch in two mapping populations of common wheat is controlled by multiple QTL of minor effects
Spot blotch (SB) is an important fungal disease of wheat in South Asia and South America. Host resistance is regarded as an economical and environmentally friendly approach of controlling SB, and the inheritance of resistance ...
A singular value decomposition Bayesian multiple-trait and multiple-environment genomic model
(Springer Nature, 2019)
Today, breeders perform genomic-assisted breeding to improve more than one trait. However, frequently there are several traits under study at one time, and the implementation of current genomic multiple-trait and ...
Quantitative trait loci of stripe rust resistance in wheat
Over 140 QTLs for resistance to stripe rust in wheat have been published and through mapping flanking markers on consensus maps, 49 chromosomal regions are identified. Abstract: Over thirty publications during the last ...
Genetics of leaf rust and stripe rust resistance in spring wheat cultivar ‘Kijil’
(CIMMYT; INIFAP; COLPOS, 2018)
Leaf rust and stripe rust caused by the fungi Puccinia triticina and P. striiformis f. sp. tritici, respectively, are important diseases of wheat and represent a significant threat in most wheat producing regions worldwide. ...
