Wheat grain yield and stability assessed through regional trials in the eastern Gangetic plains of South Asia
Improving the level and stability of grain yield is the primary objective of wheat breeding programs in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) of South Asia. A regional wheat trial, the Eastern Gangetic Plains Yield Trial ...
Performance of biofortified spring wheat genotypes in target environments for grain zinc and iron concentrations
Genetic biofortification to improve zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) concentrations in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) could reduce micronutrient malnutrition-related problems in the developing world. A breeding program on wheat ...
Introduction and exchange of improved bread wheat germplasm in the eastern gangetic plains of South Asia
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield must be increased in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) of South Asia to improve the livelihoods of poor farmers. The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and its ...
Combining superior agronomic performance and terminal heat tolerance with resistance to spot blotch (Bipolaris sorokiniana) of wheat in the warm humid Gangetic Plains of South Asia
Seven hundred twenty-nine lines of diverse wheat germplasm lines were evaluated in eight locations of three countries (India, Nepal and Bangladesh) of South Asia for 5 years (1999–2000 to 2003–2004) through ...
Regional trial results show wheat yield declining in the eastern Gangetic plains of south Asia
A study was undertaken at 9 to 11 sites in seven years (2000-2006) in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) to examine yield trend through optimum managed wheat crop in the region using 21 experimental lines and four checks ...
