  • Relationship of first hollow stem and heading in winter wheat 

    Edwards, Jeffrey Todd; Carver, Brett F.; Payton, Mark E.; Edwards, Jeffrey Todd; Payton, Mark E.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2007-09)
    The majority of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the southern Great Plains is produced as a dual-purpose crop enterprise. Profitability of the system is highly dependent on removal of cattle (Bos taurus L.) from wheat ...
  • Genetic analysis of indirect selection for winter wheat grain yield using spectral reflectance indices 

    Prasad, B.; Carver, Brett F.; Stone, Marvin L.; Babar, M. A.; Raun, William Robert; Klatt, Arthur R.; Prasad, B.; Stone, Marvin L.; Raun, William Robert; Klatt, Arthur R.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2007-07-30)
    Selection criteria that can facilitate grain yield improvement would be considered important plant breeding tools. We assessed the value of spectral reflectance indices (SRI) as indirect selection tools for grain yield ...
  • Potential use of spectral reflectance indices as a selection tool for grain yield in winter wheat under great plains conditions 

    Prasad, B.; Carver, Brett F.; Stone, Marvin L.; Babar, M. A.; Raun, William Robert; Klatt, Arthur R.; Prasad, B.; Stone, Marvin L.; Raun, William Robert; Klatt, Arthur R.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2007-07-30)
    Selection criteria that would facilitate increased genetic gain for grain yield would be considered advantageous in plant breeding programs. We evaluated the potential of spectral reflectance indices (SRI) for assessing ...
  • Molecular characterization of slow leaf-rusting resistance in wheat 

    Xu, X.; Bai, G.; Carver, Brett F.; Shaner, Gregory E.; Hunger, Robert Marvin; Xu, X.; Hunger, Robert Marvin; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2005-02-23)
    Slow leaf-rusting resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L) is gaining acceptance as a breeding objective because of its durability in comparison with race-specific resistance. CI 13227 was previously reported to provide ...
  • Covariation for microsatellite marker alleles associated with Rht8 and coleoptile length in winter wheat 

    Bai, G.; Das, M. K.; Carver, Brett F.; Xu, X.; Krenzer, Eugene G.; Das, M. K.; Xu, X.; Krenzer, Eugene G.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2004-07-01)
    Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars with greater coleoptile elongation are preferred in low-precipitation dryland regions and in early-planted management systems of the Great Plains, but the presence of GA3 (gibberell ...
  • Registration of 'Ok102' wheat 

    Carver, Brett F.; Krenzer, Eugene G.; Hunger, Robert Marvin; Porter, David R.; Smith, Edward L.; Klatt, Arthur R.; Verchot-Lubicz, Jeanmarie; Rayas-Duarte, Patricia; Guenzi, Arron C.; Bai, G.; Martin, B. C.; Carver, Brett F.; Hunger, Robert Marvin; Smith, Edward L.; Klatt, Arthur R.; Verchot-Lubicz, Jeanmarie; Rayas-Duarte, Patricia; Guenzi, Arron C.; Bai, G. (Crop Science, 2004-07)
  • Hybrid and pureline hard winter wheat yield and stability 

    Koemel, J. E.; Guenzi, Arron C.; Carver, Brett F.; Payton, Mark E.; Morgan, G. H.; Smith, Edward L.; Koemel, J. E.; Carver, Brett F.; Payton, Mark E.; Morgan, G. H.; Smith, Edward L. (Crop Science, 2004-01)
    Pureline wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars continue to dominate production fields in the southern Great Plains despite numerous attempts to introduce hybrids during the past 28 yr. The objective of this study was to ...
  • Contributions of leaf rust resistance and awns to agronomic and grain quality performance in winter wheat 

    Martin, J. N.; Carver, Brett F.; Hunger, Robert Marvin; Cox, T. S.; Martin, J. N.; Hunger, Robert Marvin; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2003-09-01)
    Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars grown in the Great Plains usually bear awned spikes for their putative value to grain yield and quality. Awnletted cultivars are generally limited to forage-only systems. We hypothesized ...
  • Physiological genetics of aluminum tolerance in the wheat cultivar Atlas 66 

    Tang, Y.; Garvin, David F.; Kochian, L. V.; Sorrells, M. E.; Carver, Brett F.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2002-09)
    Aluminum toxicity limits wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production on acidic soils. The wheat cultivar Atlas 66 reportedly may have both more than one Al tolerance gene and more than one Al tolerance mechanism. The purpose ...
  • Genetic trends in winter wheat yield and test weight under dual-purpose and grain-only management systems 

    Khalil, I. H.; Carver, Brett F.; Krenzer, Eugene G.; MacKown, C. T.; Horn, Gerald W.; Khalil, I. H.; Krenzer, Eugene G.; MacKown, C. T.; Horn, Gerald W.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2002-05)
    Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars of the southern Great Plains are traditionally bred in environments managed for grain production only but are commonly grown for the dual-purpose of producing winter forage and grain ...
  • Nitrogen use and biomass distribution in culms of winter wheat populations selected from grain-only and dual-purpose systems 

    MacKown, C. T.; Carver, Brett F.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 2001-02-06)
    Beginning in late fall and ending at jointing in early spring, winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) crops in the southern Great Plains are often grazed by stocker cattle (Bos taurus L.) and then harvested for grain. ...
  • Fall forage biomass and nitrogen composition of winter wheat populations selected from grain-only and dual-purpose environments 

    MacKown, C. T.; Carver, Brett F.; Carver, Brett F. (Crop Science, 1993-01)
    Winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is the foundation of many agricultural enterprises in the southern Great Plains and is grown primarily as either a grain-only (GO) or a dual-purpose (DP, grazing plus grain) crop. ...
