Wheat drought tolerance in the field is predicted by amino acid responses to glasshouse-imposed drought

Yadav, Arun; Carroll, Adam; Estavillo, Gonzalo M.; Rebetzke, G J; Pogson, Barry


Water limits crop productivity, so selecting for a minimal yield gap in drier environments is critical to mitigate against climate change and land-use pressure. We investigated the responses of relative water content (RWC), stomatal conductance, chlorophyll content, and metabolites in flag leaves of commercial wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars to three drought treatments in the glasshouse and in field environments. We observed strong genetic associations between glasshouse-based RWC,...[Show more]
