Weeds promote greater arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi benefit in organically managed spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivation systemDownload
Weeds appear to enhance soil microbial benefit in organic agricultuer. We examined effects of weed and microbial effects on spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield and quality under organic management systems. Canadian spring wheat cultivars were planted in weed-free and weedy treatments in...
Understanding the flowering gene complex in bread wheat is important to utilize the maximum production potential in a time-limited growing season. Vernalization (Vrn), photoperiod (Ppd) and earliness per se are the three genetic constituents of the flowering gene complex. A series of experiments...
Quantitative trait loci and genomewide association mapping in western Canadian spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)Download
Early maturity, grain yield and grain protein content are some of the important traits in western Canadian wheat breeding programs. A series of experiments were conducted to explore the genetic basis of days to heading, and maturity, plant height, grain protein, grain yield and related traits. In...
Efficiency is important in wheat breeding programs. A series of studies were conducted to determine genetic differentials, map genomic regions affecting various agronomic and quality traits in conventional and organic management systems and to improve doubled haploid (DH) technology in spring...
Diverse crop rotations are an important part of sustainable agricultural systems. More information is needed in Alberta on the effects of adding pulse crops to current rotations. This experiment investigated the effects of ‘Snowbird’ tannin-free faba bean (Vicia faba L.), ‘Arabella’ narrow-leafed...
QTL mapping and genetic studies in the Attila x CDC Go spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) mapping populationDownload
Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most important staple crops in the world. Wheat breeders in Canada primarily aim to develop cultivars with favored agronomic traits such as short stature, early maturity, high yielding, preferred end-use quality such as high protein content, and at...
Proteomic analysis of wheat (Triticum aestivum) whole roots and cell walls under water-deficit stressDownload
Wheat plants are affected by water-deficit stress in various regions of the world resulting in reduced crop productivity and thus decreased food production. To better understand the protein changes of water-deficit stress in wheat roots, comparative proteomics was performed using 2D gel...
Optimizing exponential growth of Triticum aestivum by application of the relative addition rate (RAR) technique utilizing a computer-controlled nutrient delivery systemDownload
We conducted experiments designed to assess whether plants can be grown under conditions of low ionic strength simulating natural soil conditions. Wheat (Triticum aestivum, cv. Atlas 66) plants were grown using ten different relative nutrient addition rates (RAR) of nutrients (0.00, 0.06, 0.09,...
Linear mixed model (LMM) analysis has been recently used extensively for estimating additive genetic variances and narrow-sense heritability in many genomic studies. While the LMM analysis is computationally less intensive than the Bayesian algorithms, it remains infeasible for large-scale...
