Genomic regions for canopy temperature and their genetic association with stomatal conductance and grain yield in wheat

Rebetzke, G J; Rattey, Allan R; Richards, R A; Condon, Anthony G; Farquhar, Graham

Description

Stomata are the site of CO2 exchange for water in a leaf. Variation in stomatal control offers promise in genetic improvement of transpiration and photosynthetic rates to improve wheat performance. However, techniques for estimating stomatal conductance (SC) are slow, limiting potential for efficient measurement and genetic modification of this trait. Genotypic variation in canopy temperature (CT) and leaf porosity (LP), as surrogates for SC, were assessed in three wheat mapping populations...[Show more]
