Breeding disease-resistant wheats for tropical highlands and lowlands
Wheat is grown on about 10 million ha in the tropical highlands and lowlands of the world, where it is an important food source. Many farmers in these areas work under subsistence conditions. Wheat diseases in tropical ...
Indicators of wheat genetic diversity and germplasm use in the people's republic of China
A preliminary study of wheat genetic diversity in the People's Republic of China is presented. Available evidence and basic data related to the ancestry of leading wheat cultivars and the area distribution of dominant ...
Wheat breeders' perspectives on genetic diversity and germplasm use: Findings from an international survey
Wheat breeders working in national wheat research programmes around the world, and particularly those in developing countries, are concerned that in the future scientific advance may be limited because wheat genetic diversity ...
CIMMYT's approach to breeding for wide adaptation
The wheat area in developing countries, including China, is around 100 million ha. To address the needs of these very diverse wheat growing areas, CIMMYT has defined 12 wheat mega-environments (ME). A ME is defined as ...
Pre-harvest sprouting tolerance of wheat in the field and under rain simulation
Segregating and fixed lines, selected under controlled conditions in the rain simulator at the Plant Breeding Institute (PBI), were evaluated and selected further in the field at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement ...
