Genetic improvement of bread wheat yield and associated traits in Spain during the 20th century
A collection of 26 wheat genotypes widely grown in Spain during the 20th century was evaluated in eight contrasting environments in order to quantify breeding achievements in yield and associated traits. From 1930 to 2000, ...
QTLs for barley yield adaptation to Mediterranean environments in the ‘Nure’ 3 ‘Tremois’ biparental population
Multi-environment trials represent a highly valuable tool for the identification of the genetic bases of crop yield potential and stress adaptation. A Diversity Array Technology"-based barley map has been developed in the ...
New mathematical model for computing head loss across sand media filter for microirrigation systems
Dimensional analysis was used to develop a new mathematical model that can describe head loss across sand filters for microirrigation using parameters that are easy to estimate. The developed model was compared with others ...
Identifying High Yielding, Stable Chickpea Genotypes for Spring Sowing: Specific Adaptation to Locations and Sowing Seasons in the Mediterranean Region
Superior genotypes are needed to give farmers a choice of improved cultivars of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) suitable for traditional spring sowing. From 1997 to 2010, 68 experiments comprising 404 elite chickpea lines ...

Rain-fed Agriculture, Area and Extent
Rainfed areas, although vary from region to region, are important in terms of agriculture since most of the poor communities live in these areas. Rainfed agriculture (RFA) is fragile due to climatic vagaries. More than 90 ...
