Genetic mapping and physiological characterization of water-use efficiency in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) on the Canadian PrairiesDownload
Temporal or seasonal water deficit is one of the major factors limiting crop yield on the Canadian Prairies. Empirical knowledge suggests that carbon isotope discrimination (Δ13C), through its negative relationship with water-use efficiency (WUE), is a good index for selecting crop varieties...
