Impacts of nitrogen fertility, soilborne disease, and socioeconomic factors on diverse small grain production systems of the Pacific Northwest
Small grains are grown in rotation with many temperate crops in the Columbia Basin and Puget Sound regions, functioning to improve the profitability of the cash crops. During 2009-10, 45 isolates of
Characterization of glyphosate-resistant mechanism(s) in spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) induced through mutagenesis
Wheat susceptibility to glyphosate, a non-selective herbicide targeting the EPSPS enzyme, encouraged the development of glyphosate-resistant (GR) spring wheat through mutation breeding using ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) ...
Identifying root-lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp.) resistance and functional mechanisms in wheat
Root-lesion nematodes (RLN) Pratylenchus thornei Sher and Allen, 1953 and P. neglectus (Rensch, 1924) Filipjev Schuurmans and Stekhoven are soil-borne pathogens of wheat that invade and feed on root host cells. In the ...
CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS AND MITIGATION ON WHEAT SYSTEM IN PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Although the world’s food demand is projected to increase due to population growth, the future of the global food supply is not well understood given the complex nature of stressors such as climate change. The goal of this ...
MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF THE LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT GLUTENIN SUBUNIT GENE FAMILY MEMBERS AND THEIR EFFECT ON WHEAT QUALITY
Gluten is a macro polymer responsible for the unique viscoelastic properties of wheat dough and it is formed from the interaction of wheat seed storage proteins. The low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GSs) are one ...
