Neglecting the fallow season can significantly underestimate annual methane emissions in Mediterranean rice fields
(PLOS ONE, 2018-05-31)
Paddy rice fields are one of the most important sources of anthropogenic methane. Improving the accuracy in the CH4 budget is fundamental to identify strategies to mitigate climate change. Such improvement requires a ...
Durum Wheat Landraces from East and West Regions of the Mediterranean Basin Are Genetically Distinct for Yield Components and Phenology
(Frontiers Media, 2018-02-08)
Genetic diversity of durum wheat landraces is a powerful tool for the introgression of new alleles of commercial interest in breeding programs. In a previous study, our team structured a collection of 172 durum wheat ...
Optimizing Winter Wheat Resilience to Climate Change in Rain Fed Crop Systems of Turkey and Iran
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2018-05-01)
Erratic weather patterns associated with increased temperatures and decreasing rainfall pose unique challenges for wheat breeders playing a key part in the fight to ensure global food security. Within rain fed winter ...
Pasta-Making Quality QTLome From Mediterranean Durum Wheat Landraces
(Frontiers Media, 2018-10-16)
In order to identify genome regions related to pasta-making quality traits, association mapping (AM) was performed in a set of 165 durum wheat landraces from 21 Mediterranean countries. The collection was genotyped using ...
Effect of Ppd-1 photoperiod sensitivity genes on dry matter production and allocation in durum wheat
(Field Crops Research, 2017-06-21)
Understanding the effect of genetic factors controlling flowering time is essential to fine-tune phenological development and to maximize yield. Thirty-four spring durum wheat genotypes classified in five allelic combinations ...
Effect of Ppd-A1 and Ppd-B1 Allelic Variants on Grain Number and Thousand Kernel Weight of Durum Wheat and Their Impact on Final Grain Yield
(Frontiers Media, 2018-06-29)
The main yield components in durum wheat are grain number per unit area (GN) and thousand kernel weight (TKW), both of which are affected by environmental conditions. The most critical developmental stage for their ...
