• Workshop – Wheat Phenotyping

    Participants to this workshop will receive training in the phenotypic characterization of wheat germplasm. Thematic axes are: climate change, priority characteristics of wheat for Mexico; phenotyping of materials of broad genetic base and in process of improvement, conceptual and methodological bases; methods and protocols for the phenotypic characterization of drought and heat tolerance and grain yield potential; and registration of phenotypic data using the KDSmart computer tool.

    Product details and features

    1. This workshop use didactic techniques including simulations and games, panels of discussion and learning based on problems.
    2. Participants will be able to use scientific equipment, protocols and modern computer applications to phenotype wheat germplasm.
    3. Identify correct phenotyping protocols, in order to make the field selection process more efficient.
    4. Describes the potential impacts of climate change on different wheat producing regions in Mexico.
    5. Explains wheat traits considered priorities for Mexico.

    1. Interprets phenotypic models in a context of climate change and specific production conditions.
    2. Describes the main methods of phenotyping for the identification of germplasm with high grain yield potential and adaptation to drought and heat.
    3. Introduction and an overview on KDSmart, which is a digital application for recording phenotypic data in the field.


    The workshop is available to the public interested once a year under MAB organization.


    This workshop is conducted in the field, with CIMMYT instructors and collaborators with vast experience in wheat phenotyping.
