Article
This study aimed at developing, characterizing and evaluating two maize phenotypic-selected introgression libraries for a collection of dominant plant height (PHT)-increasing alleles by introgressing donor chromosome segments (DCS) from Germplasm Enhancement of Maize (GEM) accessions into elite inbred lines: PHB47 and PHZ51. Different backcross gen...

A better understanding of the genetic control of root development might allow one to develop lines with root systems with the potential to adapt to soils with limited nutrient availability. For this purpose, an association study (AS) panel consisting of 74 diverse set of inbred maize lines were screened for seedling root traits and adult plant root...

The level of variation in various fruit traits was described among 14 Jordanian pomegranate landraces and the genetic relatedness was investigated using RAPD and SSR markers. Euclidean distances among studied landraces ranged from 3.33 to 12.01, with a mean of 7.65. Fruit and aril traits explained the variation in the first component (28.92%), whil...

This research evaluated the genotypic variation in a diverse set of 233 barley genotypes including 57 landraces in the context of early drought tolerance using polyethylene glycol-(PEG) induced osmotic stress on germinating seeds. The effect of PEG treatment ranged from accelerating to delaying the germination rate. PEG showed inhibitory effects on...

Environmental stresses such as low soil moisture and soil nutrient deficiency are the main causes for low productivity in arid and semi-arid regions. Soil amendments are one solution to minimize soil moisture evaporation and to improve plant nutrients uptake. The current study was carried out to examine the effect of different weathered and fresh v...

Efficiency of breeding programs depends on choice of optimal parental combinations. The ability to identify parental combinations that will result in greater genetic variance of progeny would help to maximize genetic gain from selection in plant breeding programs. Substantial efforts have been invested to study the possible correlations between var...
Article
Twenty‐three cytoplasmic male sterile BC1F1 barley lines were exposed to varying temperature treatments (TTs) to examine the effect of temperature on the stability of the expression of cytoplasmic male sterility (cms). The TTs used for this test were: (i) controlled low‐temperature treatment of 16°C (CL), (ii) controlled medium‐temperature treatmen...

This study was carried out to examine the response of 14 barley varieties to drought imposed at different developmental stages (DDS). To examine the effect of drought stress (DS) on germination rate and seedlings growth, the seeds were exposed to induced osmotic potentials (OP;-0.75 and-1.2 Mpa), in addition to the control. Er/Apm variety did not s...

Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) plant is a medicinal aromatic herb and belongs to Apiaceae family. It has a rich nutritional value and has many medicinal usages. Very limited information is available in the literature about fennel cultivation and production practices. Therefore, this study was carried out to evaluate the effect of planting date a...

This study describes phenotypic variation in leaf and fruit traits and investigates genetic relationships among 24 landrace (Ficus carica L. sativa) and 6 wild form (F. carica L. caprificus) accessions of fig using inter simple sequences repeat (ISSR) markers. For phenotypic traits, pair-wise Euclidean distances ranged from 0.90 to 9.80. Principal...
Article
With 2 figures and 8 tables The aim of this study was to examine the extent of genotypic variability for root traits in a diverse set of maize inbred lines. Root traits were measured in maize lines grown up to 6, 10 and 14 days in the growth chamber on a germination paper. Combined analysis of variance revealed intermediate to high heritability val...
Article
Genotypes with better root development have good nutrient acquisition capacity and may yield better under limited nitrogen (N) conditions and consequently can help reduce the N fertilization rate and hence mitigate some economic and ecological problems. This study focused on the genotypic variation among diverse maize inbred lines for seedling and...

This study aimed at investigating sources of tolerance in wheat and barley against the cereal leafminer, Syringopais temperatella Led. (Lepidoptera: Scythrididae) under semi-arid climate of Jordan. In this study, 546 accessions of bread and durum wheat, and barley were screened. The initial screening of the accessions was performed in 2006/2007, an...

Article
The variation in free amino acids concentration was examined in halophytes under salt stress conditions during spring and autumn in an arid environment, Jordan. The experiment was conducted in the southern region of the Jordan valley, using four different halophytes namely: Atriplex halimus, Atriplex nummularia, Tamarix aphylla L., and Portulaca ol...
Article
Nine hundred and twenty lines of durum wheat landraces collected from ten locations in Jordan and seven checks (Haurani 27, Acsad 65, Om Qais, Sham 3, Sham1, Sham 5 and Deiralla 6) were evaluated under field conditions in two contrasting environments (semi-arid and arid conditions) on the basis of single head row progeny. The objectives were to est...
Article
This study was conducted to determine the prevalence rate of VTEC in slaughtered sheep and goats and to evaluate the contamination rate of VTEC in slaughterhouses and butchers' shops in southern Jordan. 201 E. coli isolates from animals' faecal samples and 33 E. coli isolates from slaughterhouse/butcher shop samples were characterized by multiplex...
Article
This study was carried out to determine the effects of salinity levels (control, 6, 12 and 18 dS m−1) on germination, seedling growth, some agronomic traits and proline accumulation in leaves of nine wheat varieties adapted to semi-arid areas of Jordan. The tested wheat materials included eight durum wheat varieties (Haurani 27, Acsad 65, Om Rabbee...

Eleven barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) landraces and 12 wild barley (H. spontaneum) populations, collected from diverse eco-geographical regions of Jordan, were screened for resistance to powdery mildew. The average powdery mildew disease score (based on a 0 to 4 severity scale) was <1 in all tested barley landraces. Disease scores in wild barley popul...
Article
The flowering characteristics of a highly inbreeding species such as barley might influence the extent of outcrossing that can be expected. Increased outcrossing is a prerequisite to exploit heterosis in inbreeding species, which can lead to considerable yield increase as has been demonstrated for barley grown under marginal conditions. Anther extr...
Article
Previous studies have revealed that, in areas affected by severe drought, yielding ability and stability of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) could be improved by increasing the level of heterozygosity. One possible approach to increase the heterozygosity level is to improve the outcrossing rate. In view of that, the genetic variability and phenotypic co...
Article
The current study was implemented to assess the effect of nitrogen (N) timing application and cultivars and their interaction on grain yield, and the amount of pre-anthesis dry matter (DM) and N accumulation as well as the remobilization of the assimilates to sink (i.e. grain) under rain-fed conditions of West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region. T...

The results of previous studies conducted at the University of Hohenheim and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) indicated that the yielding ability and stability of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) could be improved in environments with drought stress by increasing the level of heterozygosity. This would require...
