Development of nutrient efficient cultivars depends on effective identification and utilization of genetic variation. We characterized a set of 276 pre-breeding lines (PBLs) for several traits at different levels of nitrogen application. These PBLs originate from synthetic wheats and landraces. We witnessed significant variation in various traits a...
Article
Current global scenario demands agricultural productivity of food grains to be kept at abreast with burgeoning population. Cereals constitute major food stuff for millennia and biofortification of new cereal varieties provides an opportunity to tackle global-scale malnutrition deficiencies without doing major shifts in the diets. Carotenoid biofort...

Main conclusion Meta-analysis in wheat for three major quality traits identified 110 meta-QTL (MQTL) with reduced confidence interval (CI). Five GWAS validated MQTL (viz., 1A.1, 1B.2, 3B.4, 5B.2, and 6B.2), each involving more than 20 initial QTL and reduced CI (95%) (< 2 cM), were selected for quality breeding programmes. Functional characterizati...

Improvement of grain protein content (GPC), loaf volume, and resistance to rusts was achieved in 11 Indian wheat cultivars that are widely grown in four different agro-climatic zones of India. This involved use of marker-assisted backcross breeding (MABB) for introgression and pyramiding of the following genes: (i) the high GPC gene Gpc-B1; (ii) HM...

High NUE (nitrogen use efficiency) has great practical significance for sustainable crop production. Wheat is one of the main cultivated crops worldwide for human food and nutrition. However, wheat grain productivity is dependent upon cultivars with high NUE in addition to the application of nitrogen fertilizers. In order to understand the molecula...

Outbreaks of emerging new pathotypes of wheat rust pathogens, increasing at an alarming rate, are threatening the global food security. Wheat rusts caused by Puccinia species are major biotic constraints in efforts to sustain wheat production worldwide. Their quick evolution and capacity to spread over long distances make the resistance breeding in...
Article
Soil salinity is a major global environmental factor limiting plant growth and productivity. Wheat seeds need to be able to germinate and establish seedlings in saline soils for sustained productivity. In this study, we investigated seed germination-related traits under salt stress conditions in 239 diverse Iranian wheat landraces for evaluation of...

A meta-analysis of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with following six major quality traits (i) arabinoxylan, (ii) dough rheology properties, (iii) nutritional traits, (iv) polyphenol content, (v) processing quality traits, and (vi) sedimentation volume was conducted in wheat. For this purpose, as many as 2458 QTLs were collected from the...

The knowledge of genetic diversity among parental lines is a prerequisite for selecting parents for hybridization in any heterosis breeding programme. Evaluation of 13 parental lines using D 2 analysis was undertaken during spring 2014 at PAU, Ludhiana. The genotypes were grouped into four clusters. Cluster II comprised of maximum number of genotyp...

The present study was aimed to estimate heterosis for oil content and oil quality of the newly developed hybrids of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) using selected parental lines. For this purpose five cytoplasmic male sterile lines CMS 11A, CMS 47A, CMS 67A, CMS 68Aand CMS 234A and eight restorer lines 95 C-1, P93R, P103R, P124R, P134R, P 145R, P...

The present investigation was carried out at the research fields of the oilseeds Section, Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, India. The material for present study consisted of 31 germplasm lines. The material was raised in two rows with three replications each row of 4.5m length with 60 cm and 30 cm...
