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 ...
Results of the 1st International Heat Stress Genotype Experiment
Fischer (1989) summarized the detrimental effects of high temperature on wheat growth as follows: Yield reduction can occur at temperatures above a mean as low as 150C, with the spike and grain growth phases being especially ...
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 ...
Complementary strategies to raise wheat yield potential: book of abstracts
The abstracts herein are of presentations by world-renowned experts for the workshop “Complementary strategies to raise wheat yield potential” (10-13 November 2009, CIMMYT-El Batán, Mexico). Sponsored by the United States ...
International Wheat Improvement: Highlights from an Expert Symposium
Wheat is grown on 217 million hectares worldwide, accounting for some 620 million tons of grain and providing one-fifth of the world’s total calorific input. In regions like North Africa, Turkey, and Central Asia, wheat ...
Evaluation of membrane thermostability and canopy temperature depression as screening traits for heat tolerance in wheat
The production of wheat germplasm with resistance to high temperature increases in importance with world wheat demand. Temperatures considered above optimal for wheat growth and development of presently grown varieties are ...
