Prediction of Genetic Values of Quantitative Traits in Plant Breeding Using Pedigree and Molecular Markers
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding. However, the evaluation of models for GS in real plant populations is very limited. This article evaluates ...
Adoption analysis of resource-conserving technologies in rice (Oryza sativa)-wheat (Triticum aestivum) cropping system of South Asia
The bread and rice baskets of South Asia feeding 20% of world population are showing stalled production due to fatigued natural resource bases. The present survey assesses the constraints in adoption of integrated crop and ...
Molecular approaches for designing heat tolerant wheat
Global warming is causing changes in temperature rapidly for over two decades. The increased temperature during reproductive phase of plant growth has emerged as a serious problem all over the world. Constant or transitory ...
Genetic analysis of adult plant resistance to yellow rust and leaf rust in common spring wheat Quaiu 3
Identifying and utilizing rust resistance genes in wheat has been hampered by the continuous and rapid emergence of new pathogen races. A major focus of many wheat breeding programs is achieving durable adult plant resistance ...
Adaptation and performance of CIMMYT spring wheat genotypes targeted to high rainfall areas of the world
The high rainfall mega-environment [mega environment 2 (ME2)], characterized by more than 500 mm rainfall during wheat season, is one of the 12 mega-environments on which the global wheat breeding program of the International ...
Breeding for enhanced zinc and iron concentration in CIMMYT spring wheat germplasm
Micronutrient malnutrition, resulting from dietary deficiency of important minerals such as zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe), is a widespread food-related health problem. Genetic enhancement of crops with elevated levels of these ...
