Phenotyping for drought tolerance of crops in the genomics era

  title={Phenotyping for drought tolerance of crops in the genomics era},
  author={Roberto Tuberosa},
  booktitle={Front. Physio.},
Improving crops yield under water-limited conditions is the most daunting challenge faced by breeders. To this end, accurate, relevant phenotyping plays an increasingly pivotal role for the selection of drought-resilient genotypes and, more in general, for a meaningful dissection of the quantitative genetic landscape that underscores the adaptive response of crops to drought. A major and universally recognized obstacle to a more effective translation of the results produced by drought-related… CONTINUE READING
