Between 1972 and 1976 a series of field experiments were conducted to investigate the factors limiting grain yield in wheat (Triticum aestivum L). Spike population restricted yield when it was below about 500 spikes/m² ...
Assessment of wheat x maize doubled haploid technology for genetic improvement of New Zealand wheat : a thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand
(Lincoln University, 1999)
New Zealand must continue to produce superior wheat cultivars to retain competitive advantage within New Zealand and contribute in terms of global wheat breeding. Doubled haploid (DH) technology allows the production of ...
Response of wheat cultivars to chlorsulfuron and the effect of nitrogen availability
(Lincoln University, 1993)
Sensitivity of wheat cultivars to the herbicide chlorsulfuron was tested and mechanisms to explain their differential response determined. In addition, a sensitive wheat cultivar, Rongotea, was selected and the effect of ...
