Soil organic carbon changes after seven years of conservation agriculture in a rice–wheat system of the eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains
Sequestration of soil organic carbon (SOC) is an important strategy to improve soil quality and to mitigate climate change. To investigate changes in SOC under conservation agriculture (CA), we measured SOC concentrations ...
First report of the cereal cyst nematode (Heterodera Filipjevi) on wheat in Algeria
(American Phytopathological Society, 2018)
Cereal cyst nematodes (CCNs) are an important group of sedentary plant-parasitic nematodes that restrict production of cereal crops throughout the world (Smiley et al. 2017). Heterodera filipjevi is considered one of the ...
Adult plant resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) in Pakistani advanced lines and wheat varieties
(Southern Cross Publishing, 2018)
After decades of effective wheat stem rust control, due mainly to use of the Sr31 resistance gene in wheat, as of the early 2000s new virulent strains of the stem rust fungus, especially the Ug99 or the TTKSK races, are ...
Crop breeding chips and genotyping platforms : progress, challenges, and perspectives
There is a rapidly rising trend in the development and application of molecular marker assays for gene mapping and discovery in field crops and trees. Thus far, more than 50 SNP arrays and 15 different types of ...
