Material type: materialTypeLabelBookAnalytics: Show analyticsPublisher: 1987Description: p.79-93.Subject(s): Adaptation | Biomass AGROVOC | Maturity | Photosynthesis AGROVOC | Reproduction | Wheats AGROVOC | Yields AGROVOCDDC classification: 338.91 In: The future development of maize and wheat in the third world. Mexico; CIMMYT; 1987615920Summary: This paper discusses five areas of opportunity for increasing the yield potential of wheat: growth and photosynthesis, timing of reproductive cycle, shifts in biomass allocation, regulatory processes and environmental responses. These areas are not master keys to increased yield potential and it is necessary to evaluate their significance according to the external environment and the internal genetic milieu. Physiological and genetic analyses in combination with empirical selection represent a good approach to increasing yield potentialCollection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
