Increasing yield potential in wheat: breaking the barriers. Proceedings of a workshop held in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico
CIMMYT's focus on developing wheat varieties that produce higher and more stable yields has made a tremendous difference in the lives of millions of people in the developing world. In the mid 1960s, the dramatic increases ...
Application of biotechnologies to wheat breeding
The application of biotechn'ology to crop improvement has been the focus of much research around the world. Tissue culture and selection of somaclonal variation were developed many years ago, followed more recently by ...
International Symposium on Wheat Yield Potential: Challenges to International Wheat Breeding
Like many other patterns, investment in research is often cyclical. International centers like CIMMYT have focused substantial resources on biotic and abiotic stresses for about two decades now, but raising total productivity ...
The adoption of bed planting of wheat in the Yaqui Valley, Sonora, Mexico
This report presents results of the analysis of data from a survey conducted during the fall-winter 1993/94 crop cycle in the Yaqui Valley of northwestern Mexico. It describes the agronomic characters of wheat producers ...
CIMMYT/NARS Consultancy on ME1 bread wheat breeding: 4-7 April, 1995 Cd. Obregon, Sonora, Mexico
Through the mechanism of internally managed external reviews (IMERS), all activities of the Wheat Program were reviewed in the period 1990-1994. In general, this was a satisfactory exercise, except that we felt NARS input ...
Four years of on-farm research results at Chalco, Mexico
The purpose of this special report is to record the on-farm research activities conducted around the area of Chalco, in the High Valley of Mexico, from 1986-1990. The research was conducted as part of the CIMMYT Wheat Crop ...
Setting research priorities for agronomic research: a case study for wheat in Chalco, Mexico
Although identifying crop production problems, setting research priorities, and identifying appropriate technological alternatives are fundamental to the success of a research program, these activities rarely receive the ...
Wheat production and grower practices in the Yaqui Valley, Sonora, Mexico
Wheat yields in the Yaqui Valley of NW Mexico have appeared to remain stable in the past decade despite the release of new varieties and improved agronomic recommendations. A study was conducted during the winter of 1990/91 ...
