Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks, is one of the most common and persistent wheat diseases in the US Great Plains. We report that the Lr34 gene was mapped in the center of a QTL for leaf rust reaction and explained 18–35% of the total phenotypic variation in disease severity of adult plants in a Jagger × 2174 population of recombinant inbred(More)
The ability of seed to germinate under favorable environmental conditions is critical for seedling emergence, plant establishment, subsequent development and growth of adult plants, and it is controlled by internal genetic factors and external environmental factors. Winter wheat in the southern Great Plains is often planted six weeks before the optimal(More)
A dominant allele of the vernalization gene Vrn-2 is the wild type conferring winter growth habit, whereas a recessive vrn-2 allele confers spring growth habit. The recessive vrn-2 allele is mutated due to the deletion of the complete gene (a null form) or alternation of a key amino acid in the VRN-2 protein (a nonfunctional form) in diploid wheat or(More)
Wheat field seedling density has a significant impact on the yield and quality of grains. Accurate and timely estimates of wheat field seedling density can guide cultivation to ensure high yield. The objective of this study was to develop an image-processing based, automatic counting method for wheat field seedlings, to investigate the principle of(More)
The quality of wheat emergence has a significant impact on the subsequent growth and development of seedlings. The structure of cultivated land surfaces is an important factor influencing wheat seedlings growth. However, few studies have investigated this. In this study, three-dimensional structural parameters of cultivated land surfaces were collected(More)
