Abstract:

This paper compares the two frameworks proposed for classifying and understanding yield performance in drought-prone environments, i.e. the 'drought resistance framework' (which identifies the specific physiological and biochemical characteristics that lead to improved yields in drought-prone environments through drought escape, dehydration postponement and dehydration tolerance) and the 'yield component framework' (which considers yield variation in terms of characteristics affecting water use, water use efficiency and harvest index). Both frameworks are necessary for successful utilization of physiological traits in breeding for improved drought resistance.
