Determination of resistance in winter wheat genotypes to the dryland root rots caused by Fusarium Culmorum in Turkey
(Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University, 2018)
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 ...
Application of a bias-corrected meta-frontier approach and an endogenous switching regression to analyze the technical efficiency of conservation tillage for wheat in South Asia
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
Conservation tillage (CT) options are among the most rapidly spreading land preparation and crop establishment techniques globally. In South Asia, CT has spread dramatically over the last decade, a result of strong policy ...
The performance of early-generation perennial winter cereals at 21 sites across four continents
A network of 21 experiments was established across nine countries on four continents and spanning both hemispheres, to evaluate the relative performance of early generation perennial cereal material derived from wheat, ...
Wheat waxy proteins : polymorphism, molecular characterization and effects on starch properties
The starch fraction, comprising about 70 % of the total dry matter in the wheat grain, can greatly affect the end-use quality of products made from wheat kernels, especially Asian noodles. Starch is associated with the ...
Definition of the low molecular weight glutenin subunit gene family members in a set of standard bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) are a class of seed storage proteins that play a major role in the determination of the viscoelastic properties of wheat dough. The LMW-GSs are encoded by multi-gene families ...
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. ...
Zero-tillage is a proven technology for sustainable wheat intensification in the Eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains : what determines farmer awareness and adoption?
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
In India, there is increasing recognition among policy-makers of the largely untapped potential of the Eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) for meeting state- and national-level food needs. Zero-tillage (ZT) is a proven ...
First report of Heterodera hordecalis, a cereal cyst nematode, on wheat in Algeria
(American Phytopathological Society, 2018)
In June 2016, six soil samples were collected from durum wheat (Triticum durum) fields of Guellal (36°2'7" N; 5°20'12" E), Hammam Sokhna (35°58’60" N; 5°48’0" E), Ain Arnat (36°10’60" N; 5°19’0" E), Seriana (35°41’37'' N; ...
