Complementary strategies to raise wheat yield potential: book of abstracts
The abstracts herein are of presentations by world-renowned experts for the workshop “Complementary strategies to raise wheat yield potential” (10-13 November 2009, CIMMYT-El Batán, Mexico). Sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the event covered innovative methods to significantly raise wheat yield potential, including making photosynthesis more efficient, improving environmental adaptation, addressing the physical processes involved in lodging, and physiological and molecular breeding. The workshop also represented a key step in establishing an International Wheat Yield Potential Consortium that involves scientists working on all continents to strategically integrate research components in a common breeding platform, thereby speeding the delivery to farmers of new wheat genotypes.
