    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Title Future-proof crops : challenges and strategies for climate resilience improvement
Author(s) Kissoudis, Christos; Wiel, Clemens van de; Visser, R.G.F.; Linden, Gerard van der

Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 2016

Breeding for stress-resilient crops strongly depends on technological and biological advancements that have provided a wealth of information on genetic variants and their contribution to stress tolerance. In the context of the upcoming challenges for agriculture due to climate change, such as prolonged and/or increased stress intensities, CO2 increase and stress combinations, hierarchizing this information is key to accelerating crop improvement towards sustained or even increased productivity. We propose traits with high scalability to yield and crop performance that can be targeted for improvement and provide examples of recent discoveries with potential applicability in breeding. Critical to success is the integrated analysis of the phenotypes of genetic variants across different environmental variables using modelling approaches and high-throughput phenotyping.
