Comparison of leaf, spike, peduncle and canopy temperature depression in wheat under heat stress
Abstract This study examines genotype×organ–temperature depression (TD) interactions and whether differences in plant morphology influence organ-TD and its correlation with canopy temperatureExpand

Genetic variation for virulence and resistance in the wheat-Mycosphaerella graminicola pathosystem. 11. Analysis of interactions between pathogen isolates and host cultivars
Nonparametric and parametric statistical procedures were employed to analyze six data sets, comprising 80 pathogen isolates and 47 host cultivars, to investigate the presence and relevance ofExpand

SSR and pedigree analyses of genetic diversity among CIMMYT wheat lines targeted to different megaenvironments
Improved bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars for diverse agroecological environments are important for success in the effort to increase food production. In the 1980s, CIMMYT introduced theExpand

Inheritance of resistance to scab in two wheat cultivars from Brazil and China
One of the major diseases that reduces the quality of wheat is scab. Quality is reduced by the production of toxins in grain by the pathogen Fusarium graminearum. Various genetic sources ofExpand

Bringing wild relatives back into the family: recovering genetic diversity in CIMMYT improved wheat germplasm
SummaryThe dangers of a narrow genetic base of the world's major domesticated food crops have become a great global concern in recent decades. The efforts of the International Maize and WheatExpand

Importance of P uptake efficiency versus P utilization for wheat yield in acid and calcareous soils in Mexico
Abstract There are large agricultural areas in the world where wheat yields are limited by low phosphorus (P) availability. Breeding for P uptake and P utilization efficiency may reduce this problem.Expand

Novel genetic diversity from synthetic wheats in breeding cultivars for changing production conditions
Abstract Bread wheat, the most widely cultivated and consumed food crop, developed in two stages through natural intercrossing among diploid grass species. About 10,000 years ago the cross betweenExpand
