Ontogenetic analysis of yield components and yield stability of durum wheat in water-limited environments

  title={Ontogenetic analysis of yield components and yield stability of durum wheat in water-limited environments},
  author={Belay Simane and Paul C. Struik and Miloudi Mikael Nachit and John M. Peacock},
One main reason for the slow improvement of durum wheat in water-limited environments is the lack of clear understanding of the interrelationships among yield components and their compensatory changes under low and erratic moisture availability. Five cultivars, varying in many physiological attributes, were tested under different drought-stress conditions in field and greenhouse experiments. The cause-effect relationships of duration of vegetative period, duration of grain-filling period… CONTINUE READING
