Wheat physiology : a review of recent developments

  title={Wheat physiology : a review of recent developments},
  author={Rebecca A. Fischer},
This review focuses on recent advances in some key areas of wheat physiology, namely phasic development, determination of potential yield and water-limited potential yield, tolerance to some other abiotic stresses (aluminium, salt, heat shock), and simulationmodelling. Applications of the new knowledge to breeding and crop agronomy are emphasized. The linking of relatively simple traits like time toflowering, and aluminium and salt tolerance, in each case to a small number of genes, is being… CONTINUE READING
