Classifying vegetable genetic resources - A case study with domesticated Capsicum spp.
Great variation for many traits seems to be available in Capsicum genetic resources but yet to be fully used by plant breeders. Adequate characterization of genebank accessions is needed to facilitate the utilization of ...
META: A suite of sas programs to analyze multienvironment breeding trials
Multi-environment trials (METs) enable the evaluation of the same genotypes in a variety of environments and management conditions. We present here META (Multi Environment Trial Analysis), a suite of 31 SAS programs that ...
Heterosis and combining ability among CIMMYT's mid-altitude early to intermediate maturing maize (Zea mays L.) populations
Maize is an important food crop in sub-Saharan Africa. There is an increasing demand for early maturing maize cultivars even though long-season maize cultivars yield more than early maturing cultivars under favourable ...
Combining ability and heterosis under pest epidemics in a broad-based global wheat-breeding population
Wheat breeders rarely apply population improvement schemes or select parental sources according to combining ability and heterotic patterns. They rely on pedigree selection methods for breeding new cultivars. This experiment ...
