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 ...
Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
(Springer; Springer Verlag, 2018)
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT’s (International Maize and ...
Increasing yield stability and input efficiencies with cost-effective mechanization in Nepal
Nepal is at a crossroads of diminishing farm-labor and inadequate investment into farming operations that, among other factors, have stagnated domestic wheat yield. Cultural and economic constraints have hindered the ...
Averting wheat blast by implementing a 'wheat holiday' : in search of alternative crops in West Bengal, India
(Public Library of Science; Public Library of Science, 2019)
Breeding-assisted genomics : applying meta- GWAS for milling and baking quality in CIMMYT wheat breeding program
(Public Library of Science; Public Library of Science, 2018)
One of the biggest challenges for genetic studies on natural or unstructured populations is the unbalanced datasets where individuals are measured at different times and environments. This problem is also common in crop ...
First report of the cereal cyst nematode (Heterodera Filipjevi) on wheat in Algeria
(American Phytopathological Society; 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 ...
Nutritive appraisal of various wheat varieties/lines for developing biofortified wheat (Triticum Aestivum L.)
(OMICS International; OMICS International, 2018)
Essential micronutrients such as iron and zinc deficiencies affect more than two billion people globally especially the pregnant women and children below the age of five. Wheat, like many other staple cereals, contains low ...
Alternative use of wheat land to implement a potential wheat holiday as wheat blast control : in search of feasible crops in Bangladesh
(Elsevier; Elsevier, 2019)
The first occurrence of wheat blast in Bangladesh was confirmed in wheat (Triticum aestivum) fields in February 2016 and re-occurred in the subsequent years. This study explores the potential of alternative use of current ...
Genetic mapping of resistance in hexaploid wheat for a quarantine disease
(Frontiers; Frontiers Media, 2018)
Karnal bunt (KB) of wheat, caused by Tilletia indica, is one of the greatest challenges to grain industry, not because of yield loss, but quarantine regulations that restrict international movement and trade of affected ...
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 ...
