Genetics of mycorrhizal symbiosis in winter wheat (Triticum aestivum).
Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) is a major staple food and therefore of prime importance for feeding the Earth's growing population. Mycorrhiza is known to improve plant growth, but althoughExpand

Breeding improves wheat productivity under contrasting agrochemical input levels
The world cropping area for wheat exceeds that of any other crop, and high grain yields in intensive wheat cropping systems are essential for global food security. Breeding has raised yieldsExpand

A novel major gene on chromosome 6H for resistance of barley against the barley yellow dwarf virus
In a mapping population derived from the Ethiopian barley line L94 × Vada, natural infection by barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) occurred. While line L94 hardly showed symptoms, Vada was severelyExpand

Genetics of host-pathogen interactions in the Pyrenophora teres f. teres (net form) – barley (Hordeum vulgare) pathosystem
The genetics of host-pathogen interactions in the Hordeum vulgare – P. teres f. teres pathosystem was studied in twelve resistant barley accessions, i.e. CI 9825, CI 9819, Diamond, CI 4922, CI 5401,Expand

Development of an efficient method for assessing resistance to the net type of net blotch (Pyrenophora teres f. teres) in winter barley and mapping of quantitative trait loci for resistance
Breeding for resistance against Pyrenophorateres f. teres in barley is difficult due to the high virulence diversity of the pathogen and the fact that in field trials a simultaneous infection withExpand

Identification of quantitative trait loci for resistance to powdery mildew in a Spanish barley landrace
The Spanish landrace-derived inbred line SBCC97, together with other lines from the Spanish Barley Core Collection, displays high resistance to powdery mildew, caused by the fungus Blumeria graminisExpand

Mapping and diagnostic marker development for Soil-borne cereal mosaic virus resistance in bread wheat
Monogenically-inherited resistance to Soil-borne cereal mosaic virus (SBCMV) in hexaploid bread wheat cultivars ‘Tremie’ and ‘Claire’ was mapped on chromosome 5D. The two closest flanking markersExpand

Genetic diversity and population differentiation of traditional fonio millet (Digitaria spp.) landraces from different agro-ecological zones of West Africa
Fonio millets (Digitaria exilis Stapf, D. iburua Stapf) are valuable indigenous staple food crops in West Africa. In order to investigate the genetic diversity and population differentiation in theseExpand

The complex quantitative barley–Rhynchosporium secalis interaction: newly identified QTL may represent already known resistance genes
Two barley populations, i.e. 135 doubled haploid (DH) lines of the cross ‘Igri’ (rrs1) × ‘Triton’ (Rrs1) (I × T) and 76 DH lines of the cross ‘Post’ × ‘Vixen’ (both rrs1) (P × V), were analysed toExpand

Diagnostic value of molecular markers for Lr genes and characterization of leaf rust resistance of German winter wheat cultivars with regard to the stability of vertical resistance
Breeding for resistance is an efficient strategy to manage wheat leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina f. sp. tritici. However, a prerequisite for the directed use of Lr genes in breeding and theExpand
