Abstract This study evaluates the changes caused by breeding in the genotype by environment (G × E) interaction of the durum wheat varieties most widely cultivated in Spain after the Green Revolution. A set of 12 cultivars was tested in 27 environments, which are understood as the combination of different sites, years, and treatments (water regime and planting dates), representative of the durum wheat growing conditions in Spain with average grain yields (GY) ranging between 2.8 and 9.1 Mg ha−1....

Abstract Date palm is frequently irrigated with brackish water. Developing tools to monitor salinity effects at the single-tree level may assist agronomy and phenotyping. Sixteen elite varieties were grown for 15 years under irrigation with three levels of saline water (5, 10 and 15 dS m−1) at the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (UAE). Trunk length and diameter, number of branches, and fruit yield per tree were recorded. Different vegetation indices were calculated from single tre...

Septoria leaf blotch (SLB) is considered one of the most devastating diseases affecting global wheat production. Biostimulant application is among the modern approaches in plant protection to overcome the impact of SLB’s fungicide resistance. In this manner, the effect of coating seeds with thyme essential oil or Paraburkholderia phytofirmans PsJN strain on SLB severity and yield components (spikes/m2, straw yield (SY), grain yield (GY) and thousand kernel weight (TKW)) were assessed under field...

Coating seeds with biostimulants is among the promising approaches in crop production to increase crop tolerance to drought stress. In this study, we evaluated the potential of coating durum wheat seeds of the cultivar ‘Karim’ with thyme essential oil on enhancing seed germination and seedling growth, and on plant growth promotion and induction of drought resistance. Coated seeds were pre-germinated, grown in hydroponics, and grown in pots under controlled well-watered and progressive water/nutr...

In Chile, durum wheat is cultivated in high-yielding Mediterranean environments, therefore breeding programs have selected cultivars with high yield potential in addition to grain quality. The genetic progress in grain yield (GY) between 1964 and 2010 was 72.8 kg ha−1 per year. GY showed a positive and significant correlation with days to heading, kernels per unit ground area and thousand kernel weight. The gluten and protein content tended to decrease with the year of cultivar release. The corr...

Abstract Knowledge of the agronomic and physiological traits associated with genetic gains in yield is essential to improve understanding of yield-limiting factors and to inform future breeding strategies. The aim of this paper is to dissect the agronomic and physiological traits related to genetic gain and to propose an ideotype with high yield that is best adapted to Spanish Mediterranean environments. Six semi-dwarf (i.e. modern) durum wheat genotypes were grown in a wide range of growing con...

Vegetation indices and canopy temperature are the most usual remote sensing approaches to assess cereal performance. Understanding the relationships of these parameters and yield may help design more efficient strategies to monitor crop performance. We present an evaluation of vegetation indices (derived from RGB images and multispectral data) and water status traits (through the canopy temperature, stomatal conductance and carbon isotopic composition) measured during the reproductive stage for ...

Abstract Much attention has been paid to understanding the traits associated with crop performance and the associated underlying physiological mechanisms, with less effort done towards combining different plant scales, levels of observation, or including hybrids of autogamous species. We aim to identify mechanisms at canopy, leaf and transcript levels contributing to crop performance under contrasting nitrogen supplies in three barley genotypes, two hybrids and one commercial line. High nitrogen...

Abstract This paper addresses the question of whether there has been any genetic gain in yield for durum wheat released in Spain after the Green Revolution and assesses the agronomical and physiological traits associated with evolution of the crop during this time. Field experiments were carried out with a wide range of durum wheat cultivars (released in Spain from 1980 to 2009) and were conducted in different sites embracing a wide range of growing temperatures and water regimes at Aranjuez and...
