Effect of allele combinations at Ppd‐1 loci on durum wheat grain filling at contrasting latitudes
(Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science, 2019-09-15)
Flowering time is the most critical developmental stage in wheat, as it determines environmental conditions during grain filling. Thirty‐five spring durum genotypes carrying all known allele variants ...
Genetic Dissection of the Seminal Root System Architecture in Mediterranean Durum Wheat Landraces by Genome-Wide Association Study
Roots are crucial for adaptation to drought stress. However, phenotyping root systems is a difficult and time-consuming task due to the special feature of the traits in the process of being analyzed. Correlations between ...
From landraces to improved cultivars: Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure of Mediterranean wheat using SNP markers
(Plos One, 2019-07-15)
Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure in crops is essential for breeding and germplasm conservation. A collection of 354 bread wheat genotypes, including Mediterranean landraces and modern cultivars ...
Unravelling the relationship between adaptation pattern and yield formation strategies in Mediterranean durum wheat landraces
(European Journal of Agronomy, 2019-05-07)
Understanding the environmental and genetic factors behind the adaptation of landraces to different environments may help design breeding strategies and to promote yield improvement. Based on previous results that showed ...
