Adoption and impacts of improved winter and spring wheat varieties in Turkey
(MARA; ICARDA; CIMMYT, 2009)
Earliness in wheat: A key to adaptation under terminal and continual high temperature stress in South Asia
High temperatures are a primary concern for wheat production in South Asia. A trial was conducted to evaluate the grain yield performance of high yielding, early maturing heat tolerant CIMMYT wheat lines, developed recently ...
Effect of terminal heat stress on yield and yield components of spring bread wheat cultivars in Ahwaz, Iran
In order to study the effect of terminal heat stress on grain yield and yield components of spring bread wheat cultivars, a stripe block design was conducted using randomized complete block design with three replications ...
Identification and validation of single nucleotide polymorphic markers linked to Ug99 stem rust resistance in spring wheat
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Wheat stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici Eriks. and E. Henn.) is one of the most destructive diseases world-wide. Races belonging to Ug99 (or TTKSK) continue to cause crop losses in East Africa and threaten global ...
Climate change at winter wheat breeding sites in central Asia, eastern Europe, and USA, and implications for breeding
Key weather parameters (monthly minimum and maximum temperature, precipitation) were extracted for 35 winter wheat breeding sites in central Asia, eastern Europe and Great Plains of USA from 1961 to 2009. Autumn and winter ...
An assessment of wheat yield sensitivity and breeding gains in hot environments
Genetic improvements in heat tolerance of wheat provide a potential adaptation response to long-term warming trends, and may also boost yields in wheat-growing areas already subject to heat stress. Yet there have been few ...
Improved methodology for resistance screening in spring wheat against the root lesion nematode, Pratylenchus thornei (Sher et Allen) (Tylenchida: Pratylenchidae)
The root lesion nematode, Pratylenchus thornei (Sher et Allen) is a polyphagous and economically important nematode in wheat production systems, particularly in rainfed environments. Chemical management of this nematode ...
