Increasing wheat yields sustainability through agronomic means
This paper examines common factors that constrain wheat yields: insufficient nutrients (using nitrogen as an example); problems of late planting and poor crop establishment; suboptimal water management; lodging; and weeds. ...
Applications of raised-bed planting systems to wheat
Estimating the economic impact of breeding nonspecific resistance to leaf rust in modern bread wheat
Breeding for resistance to rust diseases in wheat is an example of productivity maintenance research. Productivity maintenance research is necessary to avoid contractions in the wheat supply curve that result from changes ...
CIMMYT's genetic progress in wheat grain quality under four nitrogen rates
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeders often try to simultaneously improve grain yield and bread-making quality. This study examined changes in CIMMYT's wheat germplasm with respect to grain protein concentration (GPC)- and ...
Yield potential progress in short bread wheats in Northwest Mexico
Germplasm from the spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeding program at the International Center for Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT) has had a major impact on the yield of irrigated spring wheats in most developing ...
