2019 - Fellow of the Crop Science Society of America (CSSA)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agronomy
  • Botany
  • Ecology

His main research concerns Agronomy, Anthesis, Cultivar, Poaceae and Grain yield. His research in Plant breeding, Yield, Crop yield, Grain weight and Dry weight are components of Agronomy. His research integrates issues of Primordium, Dry matter, Crop, Field conditions and Grain number in his study of Anthesis.

Gustavo A. Slafer has researched Cultivar in several fields, including Growing season and Sowing. Gustavo A. Slafer interconnects Fructification, Field experiment, Genetic gain and Yield in the investigation of issues within Poaceae. His Grain yield research is within the category of Horticulture.

His most cited work include:

  • Plant breeding and drought in C3 cereals: what should we breed for? (912 citations)
  • Seed dry weight response to source–sink manipulations in wheat, maize and soybean: a quantitative reappraisal (542 citations)
  • Breeding for Yield Potential and Stress Adaptation in Cereals (520 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Gustavo A. Slafer mainly investigates Agronomy, Cultivar, Anthesis, Horticulture and Poaceae. Crop yield, Plant breeding, Yield, Growing season and Sowing are among the areas of Agronomy where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His study in Cultivar is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dry matter, Animal science and Crop.

His work in Anthesis covers topics such as Primordium which are related to areas like Fertility. The concepts of his Horticulture study are interwoven with issues in Field conditions, Allele and Plant physiology. His studies in Poaceae integrate themes in fields like Fructification, Field experiment, Flor and Genetic gain.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (83.00%)
  • Cultivar (43.87%)
  • Anthesis (38.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Agronomy (83.00%)
  • Anthesis (38.74%)
  • Horticulture (26.48%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Anthesis, Horticulture, Allele and Cultivar. His Agronomy study focuses mostly on Grain weight, Growing season, Grain yield, Yield and Crop. His Anthesis research incorporates elements of Primordium, Fertility, Dry weight, Grain number and Adaptation.

His study in Horticulture focuses on photoperiodism and Plant breeding. His Allele research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Phyllochron, Flowering time, Introgression and Field conditions. His work in Cultivar addresses issues such as Genetic variation, which are connected to fields such as Gene–environment interaction, Dry matter and Heritability.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Coarse and fine regulation of wheat yield components in response to genotype and environment (187 citations)
  • Genetic improvement of field crops. (138 citations)
  • Fruiting efficiency: an alternative trait to further rise wheat yield (72 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agronomy
  • Botany
  • Ecology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Agronomy, Anthesis, Grain weight, Cultivar and Growing season. Borrowing concepts from Trait, he weaves in ideas under Agronomy. Gustavo A. Slafer combines subjects such as Primordium, Fertility, Canopy and Genetic variation with his study of Anthesis.

His Grain weight research includes themes of Grain number and Field conditions. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mediterranean climate, Irrigation and Animal science. His Growing season research includes elements of Causative gene, Dwarfing and Genetic dissection.
