Combining field performance with controlled environment plant imaging to identify the genetic control of growth and transpiration underlying yield response to water-deficit stress in wheat
Crop yield in low-rainfall environments is a complex trait under multigenic control that shows significant genotype×environment (G×E) interaction. One way to understand and track this trait is to link physiological studies ...
Accounting for variation in designing greenhouse experiments with special reference to greenhouses containing plants on conveyor systems
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background: There are a number of unresolved issues in the design of experiments in greenhouses. They include whether statistical designs should be used and, if so, which designs should be used. Also, are there thigmomorphogenic ...
Variation in shoot tolerance mechanisms not related to ion toxicity in barley
Soil salinity can severely reduce crop growth and yield. Many studies have investigated salinity tolerance mechanisms in cereals using phenotypes that are relatively easy to measure. The majority of these studies measured ...
Mapping of novel salt tolerance QTL in an Excalibur × Kukri doubled haploid wheat population
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2018-10-01)
Key message Novel QTL for salinity tolerance traits have been detected using non-destructive and destructive phe notyping in bread wheat and were shown to be linked to improvements in yield in saline fields. Abstract ...
