Dataset of above and below ground traits assessed in Durum wheat cultivars grown under Mediterranean environments differing in water and temperature conditions
The focus of this data is to provide raw information that was used to elaborate the research article entitled “Durum wheat ideotypes in Mediterranean environments differing in water and temperature conditions”, which aims to define specific durum wheat ideotypes according to their responses to different agronomic conditions. In this context, six modern (i.e. post green revolution) genotypes with contrasting yield performance (i.e. high vs low yield) were grown during two consecutive years under different treatments: (i) winter planting under support-irrigation conditions, (ii) winter planting under rainfed conditions, (iii) late planting under support-irrigation. Different traits were assessed to inform about water status, root performance, phenology, nitrogen status/photosynthetic capacity, crop growth, grain yield and agronomic yield components.
