The use of iron-efficient rootstocks can be a sustainable way to enhance iron (Fe) fruit content in tomato. A hybrid tomato variety was grafted on a genotyped population of recombinant inbred lines derived from Solanum pimpinellifolium, and compared with self- and non-grafted controls under low iron (5.2 µM) growing conditions. Rootstock effects on total fruit yield, fruit [Fe] and yield Fe content (FeUEc) were the target traits; other minerals were also investigated by quantitative trait loci (...
The post hoc blocking row–col (RC) technique is an alternative for the evaluation of variables, allowing the improvement of selection reliability in the treatment of agronomical traits of a population. A total of 135 full-sib progenies from the Unemat’s passion fruit breeding program were evaluated. Treatments were placed in randomized complete block designs with three replications and three plants per plot. The procedure for the post hoc blocking RC technique followed a distribution of 28 rows ...

Horsegram (Macrotyloma uniflorum) is a legume species that is widely distributed throughout the Indian subcontinent. It is considered to be an important dietary protein supplement and nutraceutical. Horsegram has a great potential for fulfilling future pulse crop demand due to its inherent ability to grow under very low moisture conditions. However, the genome structure and organization of this crop is poorly understood, thereby limiting the effective use of gene resources for genetic improvemen...

Blue honeysuckle (Lonicera caerulea L.) is a novel, niche-market fruit because of its tart flavours, unique aroma profiles and abundant antioxidants. Commercial crop development requires improved biochemical traits to promote wide-spread market acceptance. Key foundation germplasm groups from Russia, Japan and the Kuril Islands were compared with three mainstream fruit crops (highbush blueberry, red raspberry and June-bearing strawberry) to characterize selected biochemical traits, including tot...

Larix olgensis is one of the most important timber species in Northeast China. Although L. olgensis seed orchards have been established for many years and some progeny tests have been conducted, studies of progeny performance and the selection of superior families are still lacking. These tests are important for upgrading and improvement of seed orchards. Here, we estimate the genetic variation for major economic traits between families to provide selection materials for the establishment of a s...

Humulus lupulus L., is an economically and ecologically important plant species, which has suffered habitat degradation throughout the Hyrcanian forests (Northern Iran). Towards conservation and exotic breeding germplasm assessment, we conducted a survey in the Hyrcanian forests: 15 wild populations (WPs) were located and 54 samples collected. Genetic diversity and population structure were assessed by scoring sequence-related amplified polymorphism markers (SSR, ISSR, and RAPD) and morphologica...

The central goal of maize (Zea mays L.) breeding is to increase the frequencies of favorable alleles in germplasm. Two broad-based composites Cpop.15 and Cpop.16 were subjected to five cycles of modified mass selection (MMS) to increase grain yield, lodging resistance, early maturing and short plant height. We evaluated the direct responses of Cpop.15 and Cpop.16 by analyzing per se performance of the two original populations and that of each resulting population after five cycles of MMS (a tota...

The fungus Pyrenophora teres causing disease symptoms similar to P. tritici-repentis was recently detected on wheat in Argentina. After confirmation by molecular studies the pathogen was identified as P. teres f. maculata, part of a complex of leaf spots that affect wheat and other cereal crops. The objective of this work was to characterize the virulence and identify QTL conferring resistance to two isolates of P. teres f. maculata (Ptm) in a collection of 110 spring wheat genotypes previously ...

Tillering is an important agricultural trait in rice and can affect grain yield. Therefore, screening and identification of mutants in tiller-associated traits are crucial for understanding the development of rice tillers. In this study, we identified a new allelic mutant of d3 with phenotypic characteristics influenced by exogenous nitrogen. The j30 mutant harbors a G-to-A base substitution at position 1900 of the coding sequence for LOC_Os06g06050, resulting in an amino acid conversion from As...

Bacterial wilt (BW), caused by Ralstonia solanacearum species complex is one of the major biotic factors limiting tomato production in the humid tropics. Pyramiding of resistance genes through marker-assisted selection is an efficient way to develop durable BW resistant cultivars. Tomato line ‘Hawaii 7996’ (H7996) is a stable and robust resistance source against various strains of the species complex. Major BW resistance quantitative trait loci (QTLs) Bwr-12 and Bwr-6, and several minor or strai...
