Lodging resistance and yield potential of winter wheat: effect of planting density and genotype
(Higher Education Press, 2015)
Improved lodging resistance is important for achieving high yield in irrigated environments. This study was conducted to determine genotypic variation in lodging resistance and related morphological traits among ...
Introgression of a gene for high grain protein content (Gpc-B1) into two leading cultivars of wheat in Eastern Gangetic Plains of India through marker assisted backcross breeding
(Academic Journals, 2015)
A wheat genotype named ‘PBW343+Gpc-B1+LR24’ containing Gpc-B1 gene linked with the DNA-based marker Xucw108, developed at Choudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU), Meerut, through markerassisted selection, was used as ...
Potential impact of climate change trends on wheat production and mitigation strategies in Afghanistan
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2015)
Climate change is here and continues unabated. It is expected to affect different biological processes differently. Afghanistan has a varied climate profile and depends heavily on wheat, the staple food of its 30 million ...
Association mapping of North American spring wheat breeding germplasm reveals loci conferring resistance to Ug99 and other African stem rust races
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background The recently identified Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) race TTKSK (Ug99) poses a severe threat to global wheat production because of its broad virulence on several widely deployed resistance genes. ...
Growth habit and vernalization requirement in some of Iranian bread wheat cultivars
(Research Trend, 2015)
To determine the action of vernalization and growth habit variation in cultivars of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), this research was carried out in greenhouse of Agricultural and Natural Resources Research Center of ...
