- ... Moderate to severe drought (water stress) at the reproductive stage is common in the U.S. Southern High Plains (SHP), where wheat is grown as a major winter crop. The objective of this study was to better understand the physiological basis of drought tolerance in elite wheat cultivars. A 2‐yr glasshouse study was conducted using three cultivars (TAM 111, TAM 112 and TAM 304) and two water treatmen ...

- ... Optimum wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield can be achieved by developing and growing the best genotypes in the most suited environments. However, exhaustive field measurements are required to characterize plants with desirable traits in breeding plots. Remote sensing tools have been shown to provide relatively accurate and simultaneous measurements of plant characteristics without destructive samp ...
