Registration of 'Ok102' wheat
(Crop Science, 2004-07)
Agronomic performace in acid soils of wheat lines selected for hematoxylin staining pattern
(Crop Science, 1992-01)
Laboratory screening techniques enable detection of varying degrees of A1 tolerance during seedling development, but their application to crop improvement programs must be verified in the field. The objective of this study ...
Relationship of first hollow stem and heading in winter wheat
(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 ...
Hybrid and pureline hard winter wheat yield and stability
(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
(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 ...
Covariation for microsatellite marker alleles associated with Rht8 and coleoptile length in winter wheat
(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 ...
Potential use of spectral reflectance indices as a selection tool for grain yield in winter wheat under great plains conditions
(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 ...
Physiological genetics of aluminum tolerance in the wheat cultivar Atlas 66
(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 ...
Molecular characterization of slow leaf-rusting resistance in wheat
(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 ...
Genetic analysis of indirect selection for winter wheat grain yield using spectral reflectance indices
(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 ...
