China/CIMMYT Collaboration on wheat breeding and germplasm exchange: results of 10 years of shuttle breeding (1984-1994)
Maintaining a fruitful working relationship with a country such as China is indispensible for CIMMYT, whose mandate is to improve the productivity and sustainability of wheat and maize production systems all over the ...
Using canopy temperature depression to select for yield potential of wheat in heat stressed environments
The main objective of the study was to validate the use of canopy temperature depression (CTD) as a rapid early generation screening tool for heat tolerance in wheat. CTD was measured at hot sites in Mexico on F2 derived ...
Breeding resistance to yellow (stripe) rust in wheat
The information contained in this paper is a precis of the PhD thesis of Dr. H.P. Bimb. Since yellow (stripe) rust has recently reared its head in West and South Asia, the rapid publication of this Wheat Program Special ...
Bread wheat, durum wheat, and synthetic hexaploid wheat in saline and non-saline soils
Genetic improvement of crops for salt tolerance will become ever more important as it becomes necessary to cultivate marginal soils. The work reported here evaluated the intra- and interspecific variability in yield response ...
