Breeding-assisted genomics : applying meta- GWAS for milling and baking quality in CIMMYT wheat breeding program
(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 ...
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 ...
Nutritive appraisal of various wheat varieties/lines for developing biofortified wheat (Triticum Aestivum L.)
(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 ...
Applications of machine learning methods to genomic selection in breeding wheat for rust resistance
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
New methods and algorithms are being developed for predicting untested phenotypes in schemes commonly used in genomic selection (GS). The prediction of disease resistance in GS has its own peculiarities: a) there is consensus ...
Relationship between the number of partial resistance genes and the response to leaf rust in wheat genotypes
The adult plant resistance conferred by genes with an additive effect is an alternative to achieve durable resistance to leaf rust caused by the fungus Puccinia triticina in wheat (Triticum spp.) The objective of this study ...
Genetic mapping of resistance in hexaploid wheat for a quarantine disease
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 ...
Effect of bed planting and zero tillage on productivity and water use of Irrigated maize - wheat cropping system in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan
(Researchers Links, 2018)
Crop establishment methods like broadcasting of wheat and manual planting of maize on flat surface coupled with flood irrigation are used in irrigated maize–wheat system of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province that requires ...
Physical and chemical properties of a sandy loam soil under irrigated rice-wheat sequence in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia
(OMICS International, 2017)
Resource conservation technologies (RCTs) such as zero tillage (ZT), dry direct seeded rice (DSR) and crop residues as mulch are known to increase productivity and profitability of rice-wheat system (RWS) in South Asia. ...
Lodging resistance and yield potential of winter wheat: effect of planting density and genotype
(Higher Education Press, 2015)
Improved lodging resistance is important for achieving high yield in irrigated environments. This study was conducted to determine genotypic variation in lodging resistance and related morphological traits among ...
Introgression of a gene for high grain protein content (Gpc-B1) into two leading cultivars of wheat in Eastern Gangetic Plains of India through marker assisted backcross breeding
(Academic Journals, 2015)
A wheat genotype named ‘PBW343+Gpc-B1+LR24’ containing Gpc-B1 gene linked with the DNA-based marker Xucw108, developed at Choudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU), Meerut, through markerassisted selection, was used as ...
