Water deficit stress (WDS) is a serious constraint to wheat productivity in rain-fed and limited irrigation environments. Identifying genomic regions responsible for grain yield (GY) under WDS will aid in understanding the genetics of drought tolerance (DT) and development of DT cultivars. A population of 206 recombinant inbred lines derived from WL711/C306 was phenotyped for GY and related traits under water deficit and irrigated conditions in seven different environments to identify genomic… CONTINUE READING
