Harnessing diversity in wheat to enhance grain yield, climate resilience, disease and insect pest resistance and nutrition through conventional and modern breeding approaches
(Frontiers Media, 2016)
Current trends in population growth and consumption patterns continue to increase the demand for wheat, a key cereal for global food security. Further, multiple abiotic challenges due to climate change and evolving pathogen ...
Combining high-throughput phenotyping and genomic information to increase prediction and selection accuracy in wheat breeding
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomics and phenomics have promised to revolutionize the field of plant breeding. The integration of these two fields has just begun and is being driven through big data by advances in next-generation sequencing and ...
Genomic Bayesian functional regression models with interactions for predicting wheat grain yield using hyper‑spectral image data
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras that provide hundreds of reflectance data at discrete narrow bands in many environments. These bands often cover the whole visible light spectrum and part of the infrared and ...
Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science, 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
Application of unmanned aerial systems for high throughput phenotyping of large wheat breeding nurseries
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Low cost unmanned aerial systems (UAS) have great potential for rapid proximal measurements of plants in agriculture. In the context of plant breeding and genetics, current approaches for phenotyping a large ...
Grain yield, adaptation and progress in breeding for early-maturing and heat-tolerant wheat lines in South Asia
Maintaining wheat productivity under the increasing temperatures in South Asia is a challenge. We focused on developing early maturing wheat lines as an adaptive mechanism in regions suffering from terminal heat stress and ...
