Ñipal F2016 : variety of bread wheat for the Rural District 014
Recent efforts in the Experimental Field of Mexicali Valley of the National Institute of Agricultural and Livestock Forestry Research have allowed the development of wheat varieties of high yield and industrial quality. ...
Impact of conservation agriculture on soil physical properties in rice-wheat system of eastern indo-gangetic plains
(Elewa BioSciences, 2018)
Soils of Indo-Gangetic plains (IGP) of India are prone to physical degradation due to their low organic matter content, and presence of carbonates, gypsum or other soluble salts. To address these challenges, conservation ...
Genetic impact of Rht dwarfing genes on grain micronutrients concentration in wheat
Wheat is a major staple food crop providing about 20% of dietary energy and proteins, and food products made of whole grain wheat are a major source of micronutrients like Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Magnesium ...
Variation in developmental patterns among elite wheat lines and relationships with yield, yield components and spike fertility
Developmental patterns strongly influence spike fertility and grain number, which are primarily determined during the stem elongation period (i.e. time between terminal spikelet phase and anthesis). It has been proposed ...
Grain yield, adaptation and progress in breeding for early-maturing and heat-tolerant wheat lines in South Asia
Maintaining wheat productivity under the increasing temperatures in South Asia is a challenge. We focused on developing early maturing wheat lines as an adaptive mechanism in regions suffering from terminal heat stress and ...
Growth habit and vernalization requirement in some of Iranian bread wheat cultivars
(Research Trend, 2015)
To determine the action of vernalization and growth habit variation in cultivars of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), this research was carried out in greenhouse of Agricultural and Natural Resources Research Center of ...
Literature on gendered agriculture in Pakistan : neglect of women's contributions
Women's role in agriculture is widely reported to be essential; despite this, women's role in the wheat-sector is under-researched. Feminist standpoint theory is applied in analyzing 73 documents on women's role in agriculture ...
Multidimensional impact assessment of zero tillage technology on wheat productivity in Haryana
The farmer’s participatory approach proved to be accurate guide for zero tillage technology adoption by farmers within different districts not only in Haryana, India, but also in other major wheat producing states of the ...
Genomic and pedigree-based prediction for leaf, stem, and stripe rust resistance in wheat
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
The unceasing plant-pathogen arms race and ephemeral nature of some rust resistance genes have been challenging for wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeding programs and farmers. Hence, it is important to devise strategies ...
