CERAAS

Evaluation of groundnut genetic materials introgressed with genome segments from the wild groundnut relatives, coordination on the sorghum activities in different part of the world, especially the West and Central Africa Region, and close interactions on crop modelling, development and phenotyping of BCNAM populations, phenotyping, and stress adaptation physiology. CERAAS also opens a window of … Continue reading CERAAS

University of Gorgan, Iran

Crop simulation modelling with SSM (Simple Simulation Modelling) on various grain legume crops. Current efforts are on expanding the use of crop models to a wide range of legume species (groundnut, bean, cow pea, chickpea, soy bean, lentils, fababena, pigeon pea), making systematic tests for robustness, training young scientists to use the new model and … Continue reading University of Gorgan, Iran

CGIAR Research Program on Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals

The contribution of the group to the scope of these two large CG-wide initiative follows the main research streams , therefore essentially around:

  • Trait dissection of plant adaptation to water limitation and high evaporative demand conditions
  • Modelling activities for priority setting of critical breeding and agronomic management targets

Phenotype Variability => Phenotype Value

Literature is flooded with reports on plant phenotypes which could potentially enhance plant adaptation to limited-water-supply environments. However, very few of these phenotypes are being practically used as selection criteria in crop improvement programmes. Part of the reason for this discrepancy is that 1) the phenotype doesn’t improve the crop production significantly 2) the phenotype … Continue reading Phenotype Variability => Phenotype Value
