Wheat rusts and the costs of genetic diversity in the Punjab of Pakistan
The theory of impure public goods is used to demonstrate why farmers may nor grow wheat cultivars with the socially desirable level of rust resistance. First, they may grow cultivars that are high yielding though susceptible ...
Interpreting genotype X environment interaction in wheat by partial least squares regression
The partial least squares (PLS) regression method relates genotype × environment interaction effects (GEI) as dependent variables (Y) to external environmental (or cultivar) variables as the explanatory variables (X) ...
Impact of CIMMYT varieties on the genetic diversity of wheat in Australia, 1973-1993
Wheats derived from germplasm developed by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) have been grown widely in Australia since the early 1970s. The impact of CIMMYT germplasm on the genetic diversity ...
The private and public characteristics of maize land races and the area allocation decisions of farmers in a center of crop diversity
This study uses an approach derived from models of the private and public characteristics of goods to illustrate (1) the overriding importance of variety attributes in farmers' decisions to allocate area among varieties ...
