From Working in the Wheat Field to Managing Wheat : Women Innovators in Nepal
(Palgrave Macmillan; Taylor & Francis, *2019)
There is very little research on women in wheat in Nepal, and wheat is still considered a 'man's crop'. Consequently, extension services rarely target women, and women are not considered as innovators. However, research ...
Canopy temperature and vegetation indices from high-throughput phenotyping improve accuracy of pedigree and genomic selection for grain yield in wheat
(Genetics Society of America, 2017)
Genomic selection can be applied prior to phenotyping, enabling shorter breeding cycles and greater rates of genetic gain relative to phenotypic selection. Traits measured using high-throughput phenotyping based on proximal ...
Decomposing additive genetic variance revealed novel insights into trait evolution in synthetic hexaploid wheat
(Frontiers; Frontiers Media, 2018)
Wheat quality improvement at CIMMYT and the use of genomic selection on it
The International Center for Maize and Wheat Improvement (CIMMYT) leads the Global Wheat Program, whose main objective is to increase the productivity of wheat cropping systems to reduce poverty in developing countries. ...
Genome-wide association study reveals novel genomic regions associated with 10 grain minerals in synthetic hexaploid wheat
Synthetic hexaploid wheat (SHW; Triticum durum L. × Aegilopstauschii Coss.) is a means of introducing novel genes/genomic regions into bread wheat (T. aestivum L.) and a potential genetic resource for improving grain mineral ...
Suppression expression of resistance to stripe rust in synthetic hexaploid wheat (Triticum turgidum x T. tauschii)
Some 74 hexaploid wheats, synthesized by either crossing resistant Triticum turgidum var. durum [T. durum] with susceptible/intermediate T. tauschii [Aegilops squarrosa] or susceptible/intermediate T. turgidum with resistant ...
Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science; 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 ...
