Overview: transitioning wheat research to serve the future needs of the developing world

Hans-Joachim Braun (2008)

For millennia wheat has provided daily sustenance for a large proportion of the world's population. It is produced in a wide range of climatic environments and geographic regions. During 2004-2006, the global annual harvested area of "bread wheat" and "durum wheat" averaged 217 million ha producing 621 million tons of grain with a value of approximately US$ 150 billion.

Wheat yield potential

Hans-Joachim Braun (2006)

В обзоре изложены вопросы генетического улучшения урожайности пшеницы и представлены результаты международной селекции пшеницы. Показано, что в будущем в связи с растущей мировой потребностью в зерне пшеницы и ограниченными площадями ее возделывания в глобальном масштабе увеличение потенциала урожайности пшеницы будет иметь приоритетное значение. В решении этой важной задачи селекционеры разных стран и специалисты международных организаций разрабатывают новые подходы. При выведении новых сортов с использованием улучшенного генетического материала и путем проведения транслокаций они добиваются сочетания высокой продуктивности с одновременной устойчивостью сортов к биотическим и абиотическим стрессам окружающей среды.

Anti-Wheat fad diets undermine global food security efforts: wheat consumption healthy despite claims in self-help publications

Roberto Peña Hans-Joachim Braun (2014)

This Wheat Discussion Paper serves as a foundation upon which the authors hope further conversation will develop. It aims to highlight unsubstantiated nutritional claims about wheat and shine a spotlight on the important role of wheat and fiber in human diets. It also seeks to encourage discussion about how non-scientific claims about wheat could affect poor consumers and global food security.

Wheat Facts and Futures 2009

Hans-Joachim Braun Petr Kosina (2009)

For nearly half a century, the international wheat breeding system has delivered improved high yielding varieties of wheat that created (along with rice) the Green Revolution and underpinned strong growth in wheat productivity in irrigated and rainfed, developed and underdeveloped, regions. Future priorities for breeding and complementary sciences will still include yield but will also diversify in response to changing market demands and growing environments, particularly in developing countries. It is argued that in the coming decades research on wheat quality characteristics will become increasingly important to plant breeders, whose work will be supported by the development of markers and advanced tools from molecular biology. Breeders will have to contend with increased heat stress and variability stemming from climate change, which is expected to create regional winners, as the northern high latitudes grow warmer and moister, and losers, as the sub-tropics and tropics increasingly suffer from heat stress and drought. Yield response of improved varieties in farmers’ fields depends to a very great degree on sustainable systems management, which also is essential to reverse the ongoing degradation of agricultural resources. Finally, the importance of expanding the systems lens from farmers to policy makers, and of linking farmers, commerce, science, and policy is illustrated for the rice-wheat farming systems of South Asia.
