Conversion of diverse seed parents to A4 and A5 CMS cytoplasmic background and diverse productive pollinators to A4 and A5 CMS system restorers
Conversion of at least 50 diverse seed parents to A4 and A5 CMS cytoplasmic background; conversion of at least 30 diverse and productive pollinators to A4 and A5 CMS system restorers.
Can Agricultural Citizen Science Improve Seed Systems
Using on-farm triadic comparisons of technologies (tricot) for crowdsourcing participatory variety selection is a new citizen–science methodology for agriculture that has been developed by Bioversity International to make ...
Development and designation of at least 18 diverse pearl millet hybrid parents resistant to virulent pathotypes of Downy Mildew
Development and designation of at least 18 diverse pearl millet hybrid parents (9 each of seed and restorer parents) resistant to at least two virulent pathotypes of DM (Downy mildew).
Ex-ante Poverty impacts of Research and Technology Options for Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia
In 2017, ex ante evaluation of GLDC technologies was based on in terms of the present value of net economic benefits (NPV), internal rates of return (IRR), and benefit-cost ratios (BCR). This year, 2018, the evaluation is ...
Molecular Mapping of QTLs for Heat Tolerance in Chickpea
Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), a cool-season legume, is increasingly affected by heat-stress at reproductive stage due to changes in global climatic conditions and cropping systems. Identifying quantitative trait loci ...
Integrated breeding approaches for improving drought andheat adaptation in chickpea (Cicer arietinumL.)
Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is a dry season food legume largely grown on residual soil moisture after the rainy season. The crop often experiences moisture stress towards end of the crop season (terminal drought). The ...
Focus traits for improvement of GLDC crops through FP4 and FP5 interventions
Focus traits for improvement of GLDC crops through FP4 and FP5 interventions.
Genome editing technologies in sorghum
Genomes editing tools such as TALEN (transcription activator-like effector nuclease) and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies have emerged as two robust additions in the breeder’s tool kit that hold tremendous potential to precisely ...
Progress towards establishing biocontrol agents against the pod borer Maruca vitrata
Presentation on progress towards establishing biocontrol agents against the pod borer Maruca vitrata.
Reproductive Dominance Strategies in Insect Social Parasites
In eusocial insects, the high cost of altruistic cooperation between colony members has favoured the evolution of cheaters that exploit social services of other species. In the most extreme forms of insect social parasitism, ...
