Oil Content and Fatty Acid Composition in Seeds of Three Safflower Species
Seeds of six safflower (C. tinctorius L.) genotypes and 19 accessions of two wild species were analyzed for oil and fatty acid composition. Oil content ranged from 29.20 to 34.00, 20.04 to 30.80 andExpand
The stem rust resistance gene Rpg5 encodes a protein with nucleotide-binding-site, leucine-rich, and protein kinase domains
We isolated the barley stem rust resistance genes Rpg5 and rpg4 by map-based cloning. These genes are colocalized on a 70-kb genomic region that was delimited by recombination. The Rpg5 gene consistsExpand
Neotyphodium endophytes trigger salt resistance in tall and meadow fescues
Infection with Neotyphodium spp. endophytes increases resistance to drought stress and soil mineral imbalances in tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb. = Lolium arundinaceum (Schreb.) S. J.Expand
Epichloe fungal endophytes for grassland ecosystems
The Epichloe fungal endophytes that inhabit grasses have potentially large-scale consequences for macro- and micro-organisms and food chains in agriculture. Over 40 years of study on the benefits ofExpand
Wild safflower species ('Carthamus oxyacanthus' Bieb.): A possible source of drought tolerance for arid environments
The detection and incorporation of genes from wild plant species provides a means for sustaining genetic improvement in plants cultivated in arid environments. This research measured relative levelsExpand
Discrimination and genetic diversity of cultivated and wild safflowers (Carthamus spp.) using EST-microsatellites markers
Abstract In spite of being one of the major oilseed crops, little is known about genetic diversity and relationships between species of safflower. In this study EST-SSR markers were used to evaluateExpand
Genetic variation, heritability and correlations of agro-morphological traits in tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.)
To study the genetic variation, heritability and genetic correlations of some agro-morphological traits in tall fescue, 25 parents from a genetically broad-base germplasm were polycrossed and theirExpand
Use of disease reactions to identify resistance in wheat to bacterial streak
An inoculation technique capable of uniformly infiltrating portions of leaves and rating scales for categorizing disease reactions were used to differentiate levels of resistance in wheat toExpand
Genetic variation among populations of wild safflower, Carthamus oxyacanthus analyzed by agro-morphological traits and ISSR markers
Wild species of safflower, Carthamus oxyacanthus Bieb., is highly crossable with cultivated species, C. tinctorius L. and could be directly exploited in broadening safflower gene pool and improvingExpand
Survival of Xanthomonas campestris pv. translucens between successive wheat crops in Arkansas.
Reducing the level of initial inoculum may be a feasible means of controlling bacterial streak and black chaff of wheat caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. translucens. The objective of thisExpand
