Information on genetic gains in different traits of wheat is important in breeding cultivars with improved grain yield. Changes in agronomic and phenologic traits resulting from breeding in Iranian wheat cultivars were studied. Eighty one wheat cultivars released from 1930 to 2006 were examined under well watered (WW) and terminal drought stress (DS) conditions at Karaj during 2007–2008 and 2008–2009, and under WW conditions in the Moghan region during 2010–2011. Improvements in grain yield… CONTINUE READING
