Different stress responsive strategies to drought and heat in two durum wheat cultivars with contrasting water use efficiency


Durum wheat often faces water scarcity and high temperatures, two events that usually occur simultaneously in the fields. Here we report on the stress responsive strategy of two durum wheat cultivars, characterized by different water use efficiency, subjected to drought, heat and a combination of both stresses. The cv Ofanto (lower water use efficiency… (More)
