Transgenic solutions to increase yield and stability in wheat: shining hope or flash in the pan?
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2019)
Second-generation transgenic crops have the potential to transform agriculture, but progress has been limited, and particularly so in wheat where no transgenic cultivar has yet been approved. Taking on the challenge, González et ...
Update on wheat improvement activities in China
(Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science; CIMMYT, 2017)
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 ...
Preliminary report of the second (2) Cooperative Near East-American Wheat Yield Nursery grown during 1962-63.Reporte preliminar del segundo (2) ensayo Cooperativo Cercano Oriente-Americano de Rendimiento de Trigo sembrado durante 1962-63.
The Cooperative Near East - American Spring Wheat Yield Nursery originated as outgrowth of a recommendation made by Dra. José Vallega (Ministry of Agriculture of Argentina) and Norman E. Borlaug (The Rockefeller Foundation) ...
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 ...
Photosynthetic characteristics of synthetic bread wheats
In the process of genetic improvement of bread wheat, photosynthetic rate per unit leaf area has decreased significantly from the maximum photosynthetic rate (Pmax) of the crop's diploid ancestors (donors of the A, B, and ...
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 ...
Economic losses from Karnal bunt of wheat in Mexico
There has been concern in Mexico in recent years about the impact of the disease Kamal bunt (KB) on the wheat industry; however, to date no comprehensive information has been available on the economic impact of the disease. ...
Sources of growth in wheat yields in Pakistan's Punjab, 1965-2000: is there a sustainability issue?
Wheat yields rose rapidly in the Punjab of Pakistan during the Green Revolution decade, 1966-76, but the rate of growth has been significantly slower in the decade that followed. Official statistics indicate that the yield ...
