Abstract :

Wheat is one of the most important crops throughout the world, and heat and drought stresses are two of the major abiotic factors limiting wheat growth, development and production in the world. Developing a viable wheat breeding program that will increase the tolerance of wheat to heat and drought is a pivotal strategy for breeding new cultivars in order to maintain wheat yields, given the climate changes forecast for the future.
