Association mapping of common bacterial blight resistance QTL in Ontario bean breeding populations
BackgroundCommon bacterial blight (CBB), incited by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli (Xap), is a major yield-limiting factor of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) production around the world.Expand

The Weed-Competitive Ability of Canada Western Red Spring Wheat Cultivars Grown under Organic Management
Competition from weeds can reduce grain yields in both conventional and organic systems. Plant height, tillering, and elevated photosynthetically active radiation interception are some of the traitsExpand

Performance and stability of performance of spring wheat variety mixtures in organic and conventional management systems in western Canada
SUMMARY Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) variety mixtures represent a relatively unexplored avenue for maintaining and stabilizing yield for both organic and conventional producers. The present studyExpand

Can Leaf Chlorophyll Measures at Differing Growth Stages be used as an Indicator of Winter Wheat and Spring Barley Nitrogen Requirements in Eastern Canada
Plant need-based N management approaches may increase the efficiency of N fertilizer application in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). The leaf chlorophyll concentrationExpand

Genetic analysis of flowering and maturity time in high latitude spring wheat
Due to the short growing season in the high northern latitudes, the development of early maturing spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars is important to avoid frost damage which can lowerExpand

Inheritance of high levels of adult-plant resistance to stripe rust in five spring wheat genotypes
Inheritance of adult-plant resistance to stripe rust (caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici) in five spring wheats (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell) following inoculation with theExpand

Molecular characterization of vernalization response genes in Canadian spring wheat.
Vernalization response (Vrn) genes play a major role in determining the flowering/maturity times of spring-sown wheat. We characterized a representative set of 40 western Canadian adapted springExpand

Cultivar and Seeding Rate Effects on the Competitive Ability of Spring Cereals Grown under Organic Production in Northern Canada
Organically managed production systems often experience greater weed pressure than their conventional counterparts, potentially causing yield losses and increased weed seed build-up. The use ofExpand

Can spring wheat-growing megaenvironments in the northern great plains be dissected for representative locations or niche-adapted genotypes?
Characterizing variety testing sites and identification of sites with negligible genotype × environment crossover interaction is important for plant breeders wishing to identify superior germplasmExpand
